How to Get from Athens City Center to Athens Airport and Other Destinations
Athens, the capital of Greece, is an ancient city with a great history. This place attracts people from all around the globe with a huge variety of tourist spots. In order to reach or leave this city, they use public transport, a transfer, or a taxi service.
Taxi from Athens
A taxi in Athens can be ordered via phone or the Internet, picked up at ranks, or hailed on the street. Legal cabs are yellow and have illuminated TAXI signs on top. The green color of the sign means this car is available for hire, and the red color of it means it’s already waiting for a passenger. The trip from the city to the airport costs €38 at daytime and €54 at night. Keep in mind that not all taxi drivers speak English. Besides, some of them may not accept credit cards, so it is better to have some cash with you.
Transfer from Athens
If you don’t want to spend your time looking for a cab or waiting for public transportation, ordering a transfer with the Kiwitaxi company will be the best option.
You make a booking online, and once you do it, the rate stays fixed. So a transfer for 4 passengers from Athens to the air hub will cost €35. A group of people can take a minivan or a minibus.
Transfers to other popular locations (for instance, Piraeus Port) are also available.
Public transport from Athens
In order to reach the air hub from the center, take Metro Line 3. A one-way ticket costs €10 and needs to be validated before boarding (otherwise you will be fined). Also, you can take the suburban electric train whose fare is €10, as well. But don’t forget that these two options are not available at night.
Another way to reach the airport is by express bus (X93, X95, X96, X97). In this case, you will pay €6 for a single ticket. These buses operate at night, however, they run at large intervals.
From the center, you can also reach Piraeus Port. To do that, take Metro Line 1 or the buses №49 or №40. The price for this trip will be €1.4.
Lots of palaces, places of worship for ancient Greek gods, old ruins, and galleries can be found in Athens. The most significant sight here is the Acropolis which consists of several temples. Other places of interest include the Acropolis Museum, Syntagma Square with the Parliament House, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Panathenaic Stadium, the Ancient Agora, etc. The city also has plenty of taverns, bars, and coffee houses where tourists stay up late after long walks around the city and its suburbs.
