Piraeus to Syntagma at 11pm, metro or taxi?

Need expert advice.

I am arriving at Piraeus by Blue Star Ferry only at 11.20pm. I am staying at a hotel at central (Syntagma / Acropolis area). Does the green line metro still operating at that time? If I choose taxi, how long would it take and how much do I roughly expect to pay?

Many thanks all.

Jerry,

The 040 bus runs 24 hours a day between Piraeus and Syntagma.

If taking a taxi beware of the touts hanging around the port - they will invariably charge at least double the standard rate

If you are on the Blue Star from the Cyclades then the walkway that takes you over the road should be directly in front of you

At the other side double back on yourself and there is a taxi rank there

Got a taxi from there in June and were charged about €12 to a hotel south of the Plaka

Your journey is slightly longer and later in the day but should not be more than €18 at the most

The bus 040 is not convenient to reach from the port, taxi would be your best option.

Thanks all. May I assume taxi would be plentiful even at 11.30pm?

Hi,

Yes, there will be taxis around after 11.30 pm but do follow the advice given by garymich in post 3 or hail any passing taxi.
