public transportation from Piraeus to Acropolis

Where do I catch the metro from the port in Piraeus to go to the Acropolis? I took it back from the Plaka area. We enjoy walking so that is not an issue.

Take the Metro to Monasteraki in Plaka area and than walk a little around the park to the Akropolis

Click the link for "Visiting Athens for one day" etc. under "Top questions about Athens" on the upper-right hand side of this page. It has a lengthy sub-section called getting from the cruise port terminal to the Acropolis and back which provides a detailed response to your question.

There has been some building work at Monasteraki metro station on the Pireaus line in recent weeks which has resulted in the northbound platform being closed. When we went it was not much of an issue as the train simply turned round at Omonia and stopped at Monasteraki on the way back. But its worth being aware of just in case.

There is usually plenty of information (not the clearest I hasten to add) at Pireaus metro explaining the scope of any construction work and resulting line/station/platform closures.

I guess someone who is in Athens now will be able to give an update as to whether they have finished it, or started digging something else up.

Hey and welcome boorehn:-) If that is the case with the metro when you get there..even if not..you can take the metro Green Line from Piraeus to Omonia..from there, you can change to the Red Line for 3 super quick stops to the Akropoli station which also leaves you around the corner from the New Akropolis Museum;-) Enjoy all!
