My girlfriend and I will arrive at Athens airport on 10/5. We are planning to do a cycling trip in the Peloponnese for 10 days, and we will bring our bicycles from home in bicycle boxes. We would like to leave the bicycle boxes in a luggage storing place, either at the airport or at Piraeus port from which we will take the ferry to Poros.
I looked for a storage place at the airport (with Pacific Travel) but its going to be very expensive - more than 50 Euros for a bike,,,,
so the next Idea is to get from the airport to the port by Metro (and to bring the bicycle boxes with the bicycles still in them on the metro), get to the port and then assemble the bike and leave the bicycle boxes somewhere in the port.
is there such a place (that won't be too expensive) in the port? keep in mind that bicycle boxes are bigger than the usual suitcase - the dimensions are 154x25x54....
If there isn't such a place at the port, I think our best option is to try to find a bicycle shop that is close to a metro station (if its close to the airport its even better) and then we will assemble the bicycle when we arrive at the airport, throw away the boxes and on the way back stop at the bicycle shop, disassemble and pack the bikes and go with the metro to the airport with the boxes.
So - if anyone can help me with any of these questions it would be great:
1) a place to store boxes in the port
2) a good bicycle shop that is close to a metro station preferably close to the airport.
