Piraeus Paros Ferry reviews

  • "Dry travel"

    Comfy clean and on time service. Was great to have an indoor seat, much nicer and warmer than the blue star ferry we got on the way back, though you might want to bring a jumper and some longer leg trousers as it was still a bit cold. But at least it was completely dry!

  • "Take a big jumper "

    The ship is nicely decorated. I ordered a seat in the business class lounge. I did not realise it was a sit where you want in a restaurant style setting. I came direct from a flight with only an hour sleep so I hoped that a business class setting would be less noisy. The lounge was packed which is nobody’s fault with many mobiles going and children playing. Unfortunately there were also many announcements so I was unable to sleep. Plus the seats are not designed to close your eyes in. The staff are friendly and there are plenty around. If I was not that tired I would have enjoyed it better. The thing that stood out for me is that the air conditioning was on full blast. I suppose for the staff who are running around it is necessary but for guest sitting around very uncomfortable. Blue Star Ferries did however deliver what was promised. They took me safely from one port to another on time.

  • "Good trip"

    We travelled from Piraeus to Paros yesterday on Blue Star on economy tickets. We found comfortable seats outside, the ship left on time, the sailing was smooth, we had coffee, tea and cake that were all good, and the ship was clean. No complaints from us and we were very happy with the service. Thank you Blue Star.

Piraeus Guide

The port city of Piraeus in Greece lies on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of the country and forms part of the Athens urban area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Piraeus is Greece's main port and the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is the hub of Greece's maritime industries and the base for its merchant navy. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.

Paros Guide

The Greek island of Paros is one of the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea close to the island of Naxos which is about one hour away by ferry. It is a popular holiday destination and has a reputation for being a friendly island and very welcoming to its visitors. It is the second largest of the Cyclades and has many things to see and do including taking part in the many different water sports that are on offer. There is also the Church of Panagia Ekatantapiliani which dates back to 326 AD and is also popular with tourists. For a relaxing way to spend your time on the island there are some lovely tavernas that line the Parikia seafront and also some lovely beaches that include Agia Irini, Farangas, Kato and Logaras.

The island's port is in Parikia and hosts both conventional ferries and high speed ferries. Ferries generally depart to Piraeus and to the other islands of the Cyclades.
