Athens-Rafina august 2017, The port of Rafina is only 15 km from the airport of Athens, which makes it a lot closer than the port of Piraeus. The distance from Athens to Rafina is about 55 km and it can be covered by bus. The tourist development in Rafina is bit limited, with few hotels and a close camping but many cafeterias and restaurants.
