Nicksy is correct. You need to take the Metro to Monastiraki and from there it is only a short walk to your hotel.

Your best way to the airport next morning is to go back to Monastiraki and take the metro again. They start running before 6am and the journey time is about 40 minutes. Times here athensairporttaxi.com/metro/timetable-to-air…Edited: 18 February 2017, 10:41
Although I haven't used a taxi for the journey there are fixed rates for this and several other destinations in and around Athens. This web page may prove a good starter for 10 for you. http://www.athensairporttaxi.com/
Having seen the above post by Nicksy I would discount a Piraeus taxi as the fixed rate there is about €15 more expensive than the Athens Centre rate.Edited: 18 February 2017, 11:32
I would certainly consider a taxi for more than one reason. I was thinking the daytime rate for port to Monastiraki would be about €25, and that's exactly what this web page shows: http://www.piraeusporttaxi.com
Thank you all. Looks like taxi at 25 € will be good.
That ferry only stops at Paros.
I have stayed on that street, Mitropoleos, between Monastiraki and Syntagma square. Close to the Plaka hotel.
The X96 goes from Piraeus Port to the airport not near that part of Athens.
We caught that ferry to Piraeus then the train to Monastiraki. From the ferry we simply followed the crowd to the station where we bought tickets from one of the machines.Just be watchful of your belongings. We wore money belts so there was one less thing to worry about. We got a seat on the train and the journey was uneventful. From Monastiraki it was an easy walk past the hotel where you are staying to our apartment on Adrianou street about 2 blocks away.
Another couple of questions: How long is the taxi journey from the port to Hotel Plaka (pm 21 June) and also from hotel to airport 23 June?Edited: 09 May 2017, 04:00
