I am a Greek American and have been traveling to Greece off and on since 1976.
Even though the distance is only about 5 miles, I know from experience travel time from Syntagma square (Town center) to Pireas can take up to 45 min by car provided the traffic is good and not rush hour. The advice to take the bus and better yet the new Metro is right on the money. Beware of taxi drivers, they even try to take advantage of us Greeks by going the "long way"...foreigners...well they are red meat...
