The tube is the best way to Piraeus, and cheaper than a taxi. A ferry out to Aegina is a short trip but worth it.I once took a group as a tour guide around the acropolis in Athens……. I wasn’t actually a paid guide but studied the Parthenon etc intensively and knew what the piles of rocks were……I was showing my poor wife round and people were following us..
the museum and temple of Zeus are fascinating…..get a cab to Piraeus harbour too!
I was about 7 at the time and at the place we went to the bathroom (we only stayed in Athens for about 24h before going to Naxos), there was a hole in the floor, third world style. From what I remember my mum saying, we probably had a bit of bad luck - pretty sure, like you say, that most of town was modern enough to have proper toilets.What do expect in a Greek prison Seriously I lived there for a few years and can confirm we had a toilet like the rest of the Modern world.
