Transportation form Piraeus to Athens Airport

by moodyjules

What is the quickest way (other than taxi) to get to the Athens airport from the fast ferry dock at Piraeus? How much time should be allowed?

Also, thank you so much to all of you wonderful advisors who have helped me with my daughter's travel plans and transportation in Athens. She would be doing this on her own if she were not in the middle of final exams. I am not worried about her other than the middle of the night travel with the current political strife and stikes. I traveled to Greece alone with no itinerary 25 years ago and stayed for 6 weeks - one of the best trips of my life!

Their travel dates are early - May 15 - 30.

On our list visit we took the above-mentioned express bus which skirts around the city centre along broad, fast roads and doesn't involve any changes. It was a lot cheaper than the Metro, which involves a change in the city centre. The bus makes several stops as it goes through Pireaus, but you can't miss the ferries!

We didn't make the return trip to the airport but this, but it works the same.

Travel Tips for Athens

Greek Orthodox Services

by trudik

The view of the Acropolis lit up at night from anywhere. I saw it from the roof-top garden of my hotel (10 stories up) and from just under it in the Plaka. It makes no difference where you see it from - the view is breathtaking. On Sunday morning, my first in Athens, I took a wrong turning on my way to see Syntagma Square. I started to hear Arabic-sounding chant and realized the words were "Kyrie Eleison", or "Lord have mercy". Following the sound, I came to a tiny church and walked in. I stayed, mesmerized by the chanting. At Communion time, I was invited by a tiny old lady dressed in black to participate. I tried to refuse, but she pushed me toward the altar, where I was given a small piece of bread and proceeded to eat it along with the other ten people that fit in the church. To anyone familiar with Orthodox services this may not be special, but I found the entire experience magical, particularly since the church is right in the middle of Athens.

Go up to the Acropolis and just walk!! I was there in August and it was ABSOLUTELY hot! Lots of sunblock, wear your sunglasses and hats/caps! Check out this website because it was a great help to me when i was planning my trip to Greece.

National Art Gallery and Alexandros Soutzos Museum

by Kodi01

The National Art Gallery and Alexandros Soutzos Museum is the most important institution to Greece. The subjects are the history of Greek and Western European Art.

It has been in operation since 1976. Address is: 1 Michalakopoulou str - 50 Vas. Constantinou st. 115 28 Athens The most important collections are Greek Painting (19th and 20th century) and European paintings.

I love impressionist art work and so Picasso's piece was most interesting to me.

There are also Miro pieces of art work, which was my friends favorite artist.

The works are over! The new Athens emerged!

by athenian80

When Athens was awarded the Olympic Games back in 1997 a lot had to be done to fulifil the needs of the world's most demanding project. Dozens of small and big projects have been built since then changing the face of Athens but also straining the people's nerves during this long period! This effort paid off though. It's visible everywhere. Someone who has visited the city a few years ago will have a very different opinion if he/she visit the city now. Athens is now a truly modern metropolitan center.
