"From the airport" Greece Transportation Tip by Durfun

Greece Transportation: 232 reviews and 175 photos

The metro line 3 connects to the city (though 5:30 - 24:00). Jouney time to Syntagma is 30 mins (fare is 6EUR), to Piraeus is 60 mins. Taxis are reasonably priced.

You can get good boarding in the Plaka or Syntagma area, offering good views of the Acropolis.

After visiting Athens, make sure you visit the Acropolis exhibits in the British Museum in London (if you haven't already done so). The Elgin marbles & the videos in the small room with scaled models of the Parthenon are superb, and help you make sense of the whole structure.

Mode: TO
Type: Subway/Metro
