Re: Transportation from Airport

by Mozumbus

public transport?

Take the airport bus to Syntagma Square and then catch the Express E22 bus. See my below tips for further details:

Travel Tips for Vouliagmeni

Green, Clean, and Serene

"Vouliagmeni: The Sunken Town"

If you are in search of an escape from the ever-busy Athens and do not want to spend another day at a touristy attraction, then Vouliagmeni – a peninsular town some 25 km south of Athens – is something you should head for. A day trip is worth it especially when you could not plan for Greek islands and wish to at-least have a glimpse of what these islands are so famous for.

Sporadic hills, pine trees, blue-flagged beaches, sandy sea-shores, clear sea, and a fresh water lake make this green suburb very different from the noisy conurbation. The spot is equally suitable for luxury as well as budget recreation; in addition to lavish private beaches and resorts, public beaches provide with the basic amenities free of cost, however, one ought to be there early to beat local youths who come early and in quite a number. There were hundreds of seats on the beach we visited and we found an unoccupied one only after searching for it.

Weekend is preferable, when most of the tourist attractions remain close. However, keep in mind that Athenians flock to their favourite beaches on weekends, but to many tourists this only adds to the ambiance and gives them a chance to savor the culture in a local setting.

The word Vouliagmeni means “Sunken” and the town is named so may be because of its low altitude and isolated nature. Because of its unique geographical setting the beach is good for swimming even in days when the sea gets rough. And for those who want more, the town offers sea sports and activities, Nautical Clubs, and even a docking Marine at Lemos area with modern facilities for boating.

Getting to Vouliagmeni is easy; just take the fast E22 Saronida Express bus from Syntagma Square for about 45 minutes of easy ride. I understand from a forum posting that E22 is now included in Athens Transportation card, which was not the case when we visited, and we instead took the slow tram plus a bus ride to reach to the beach. Kindly email me should you have any further information in this regard so that I can update the tip.

Here I would also like to acknowledge a fellow VTer Janet Hellis whose Vouliagmeni Tip compelled me to include the beach in our European backpacking trip itinerary, which we did not regret.

Best suburb of Athens

by thanalik

"Vouliagmeni intro"

Vouliagmeni is a suburb of Athens 20kms away from the city center and an easy drive.I have to tell you that people who live in my city have a custom.
Drink of coffee.But when we say we go for coffee,we go and forget to return. Thats why you drive a lot of km to get to a cafeteria or that is the reason we have so many cafeterias.
Vouliagmeni is a favorite destination for coffee.A big peninsula with a short road crossing the 2 main beaches.The right one named Asteras beach,the most trendy beach of Athens,full of politicians, athletes, models,is semi-private and you hasve to pay a fee to get in and the left one which is seperate in two.
One free of entrance, most favorite of families and another semi-private with lower fee than Asteras, which is more preferable by younger people.

Vouliagmeni is the most expensive place in Greece and one of the most in Europe.This shouldn't scare you cos there you can find a lot to do of all ranges of cost.Great food and perfect fish taverns but also souvlaki restaurants.In this page i'll try to give you my preferences and some hidden tips or places.
Just to know that all places in this area overlook sea some with sunset and be sure i'll let you know about everything that you will view.Just keep in mind the first photo of this page for directions of where is what.

"vouliagmeni lake"

Although a tourist trap for me, lake of Vouliagmeni worth a visit.Easy to find if you walk the road from the left beach direction left,after 150-200m. on the opposite side of the road, there is the lake hidden.
This lake is a mystery.There are some underwater catakombs, where said, can take a lot of kms away through underwater corridors.But... Noone has ever discover this, because all teams have ever tried to map the lakes mysteries, found all drunk!!
Spend a visit there for a coffee or even to swim the lake and you will hear a lot of stories about the lake...
