If we also include the ships departing for Argosaronic destinations that are estimated to serve around 10,000 passengers daily, more than 110,000 passengers are expected to depart from the port of Piraeus alone in this three-day period. These figures result from the reservations made until yesterday at the shipping companies.
The Port Authority has taken all the necessary measures to facilitate the passengers, while it is good for those who are going to travel to be at the ship’s departure dock an hour earlier, due to increased traffic on the surrounding roads.
