port of piraeus/athens

We arrive in port of Piraeus 7am and our return flight is 10 following morning. What do you suggest we do with our time? I think we should book a hotel near the airport, but then we have to go there and drop off our luggage which would take time from our day. We will have spent a day in Athens in the beginning of our tour...but it doesn't look like we are going to Delphi. Do you think we can squeeze that in?

Delphi would be rather difficult, but there is no reason you couldn't book a hotel in Central Athens and enjoy a day in the city. There is bus service running to the airport from Central Athens 24/7, and the metro runs to the airport from 5 am, so you should have no problem getting in the airport in time to make your flight, even relatively early in the morning.

I agree with Neo11 above, there is no need to stay near the airport, spend that night in the city centre. Have you considered visiting ancient Corinth or Cape Sounion?
