…The timing of the early ferries from Pireaus is grim, and you need to be at the terminal some time before departure. And the port isn’t a great place to spend the night, but you don’t want to have to travel from central Athens in the morning. The later ferry means you miss a day on Paros, so that’s not ideal either.

I almost always conclude that the best option is to fly to the Cyclades, but, like you, to take the ferry back.

This is spot on advice. I did stay the night at Piraeus for an early ferry. I just felt very tired later in the day.
