Piraeus - Le Pirée

Piraeus is the port of ferries going to all Cyclades islands except the closest to Attica, Kea (departure from Lavrio) and Andros (departure from Rafina). It's a big hideous city that guides and tourists don't recommend to visit, but it's quite fascinating with its huge port and its sad streets leading to small quiet parks and lively pedestrian areas...
