Prefecture of Attica Transportation

  • Metro

    Athens Transportation

    If you arrive to Athens by plane, going to center of city only available by "blue line" metro or airport bus. I generally transported by metro. Firstly, you need to pay 4€ for metro from airport to city but other metro lines just 1.20€ for adults and 0.60€ for students. Surely you need to show your student ID card. When you buy this ticket, thats...

  • Airport bus

    Athens Transportation

    If you are not considering to take the metro or a taxi to the city centre, then the bus can be is your choice. Line X95 Syntagma Line X96 Piraeus Line X93 Kifisou Avenue Line X97 Dafni

  • El. Venizelos Airport

    Athens Transportation

    ok, there are 3 options: -taxi Since February 2011 there is a fix price from/to city center. It will cost you 35 euros (including tolls/luggage etc). After midnight(till 5.00am) it costs 50euros. The ride will be less than an hour but depending on the traffic it may be 2 hours! (during general strike it's like hell because everyone is using a...

  • Long Distance Buses

    Athens Transportation

    Forum reply from April 2011 You really are short of time. Even Delphi could do with 2 days as it really is a fascinating place. A day out there from Athens is doable though by bus and is quite a pleasant journey. There are 6 services a day from the bus station at Loission and the journey time is about 3 hours with a rest break about half way at...

  • Taxis

    Athens Transportation

    You will find them everywhere, the yellow race as we call them (all the taxis in Athens are yellow) fill the streets as there are 15.000 taxis in Athens! I seriously think that they are responsible for the huge traffic of Athens! :) I have to admit I rarely use them except some late hours when there is no metro to take me back home. The last year...

  • Tram

    Athens Transportation

    The first tram operated in 1882, they were wagons drawn by 3 horses (!) while in 1908 the first electric trams came. There were 21 different lines but the state put then away in the name of evolution in 1960! Trolley buses have started to replace the tram lines since 1953, many of them are still around with the same numbers the trams had back...

  • Local Buses

    Athens Transportation

    You need to get to Aigyptou Square, past the National Archaeological Museum to catch a bus to Sounio. The frequency and timetable can be found from the kiosk at the rear of the bus station. If you're at Syntagma, catch and purple & yellow bus (numbers 5 or 11) heading towards Aigyptou. Alternatively, you can take the metro to Viktorias, and then...

  • Long Distance Trains

    Athens Transportation

    Probably the second best option to reach the Airport (after an Airport Express Bus), provided you are lingering around the Larisis train station. The Metro looks like a "quicker" option, but it is not cheaper and you will be prone to switching trains. Not a big deal if you have no luggage. Fare: 6 euros one-way and 10 euros round-trip. No...

  • Ferries and Ports

    Athens Transportation

    There are three ports that you can you for ferries/boats to the islands, Piraeus, Rafina, Lavrio For Piraeus which is the bigger port get subway (green line) to Piraeus and most of the boats will be there in front of you! In case some of them are further in other piers just ask a local agent. There is a free local bus that goes furt

  • Car Rental

    Athens Transportation

    AVOID, a UK-based international car rental company, as they are misleading customers. I believe they don't own a single vehicle, but use 2nd league local care hire companies with retired vehicles, with rates just under the going rates for new/almost new cars. The don't stick to their own policies regarding pricing. They also waste...

  • Sightseeing Buses

    Athens Transportation

    There used to be a bus line, bus No.400 which was the Athens Sightseeing public bus. I never used it but it seems not many visitors used it either because I guess they didnt want want to spend 90' in bus seeing the center of the city without doing anything! The local joke was “what is blue, empty and does circles in the traffic of Athens?” The line...
