Athens Information and Hotel Recommendations
Your catamaran and charter will depart and disembark from Zea marina near Athens and the large port of Piraeus. We’ll provide fully detailed arrival information in your final pre-trip email.
Central Athens is about a 20-minute taxi ride away from Zea marina (the Athens airport is about a 45 min ride). If you have time to explore, I’d recommend staying near central Athens which is a great location for exploring the main sites in Athens (including the Acropolis). As far as hotels in that area I recommend the Fresh Hotel (a Marriott hotel), Grand Britannia Hotel as well as the Electra Hotel (both Athens locations are good options). If those are booked or out of your budget you can’t go wrong with any highly reviewed hotels in that area.
If you’re looking for convenience and accommodations near Zea Marina we’d recommend The Alex. If that hotel is booked up you can check TripAdvisor for other highly rated hotels in the Piraeus area of Greece.
*Near the airport the best option is the Sofitel Athens Airport (it’s really the only option)
