We land at Athens International at 9:20 and head straight to Piraeus to catch a ferry to Hydra (Terminal E8).
My natural instinct is to take the cheapest option, which is the EUR 6 express bus X96. Question for this route is: I can't seem to find two websites that show the same route for this bus, and I'm not sure it will put us within easy walking distance (with backpacks) of Terminal E8. Does anyone know for sure?
Option 2 would be the Metro, but that certainly doesn't get us any closer to the Terminal than the bus does, costs more (EUR 9), and requires a connection in downtown Athens. Probably not the best option, unless someone has other thoughts.
Options 3 and 4 are Taxi or Uber, which are obviously the most convenient, dropping us right where we want to be, but costing EUR 38-55.
Has anyone done this connection before and has any advice on the best way to do it?
