First one is by boat(fast one does ~2 hours and the slow one around ~4 hours), boats are departing from Piraeus port.

You can go to Piraeus port either by Taxi using the beat app which is like Uber but in Greece(You can download it either from IOS or Android) or of course you can just hop in any of the regular taxi’s which you can easily find them everywhere(I would suggest to book a Beat though in order to be able to know how much you will pay).
