Getting to Athens


From the Airport

Athens International Airport is a 20-minute metro ride from the city center. Express buses connect the airport to Piraeus (X96), the metro stations at Dafni (X97) and Kifissia (X92), and the Peloponnese bus terminal (X93). Tickets are .80 for 1.5 hours. The suburban railway also provides transportation to the city center (6) and Corinth (8).

Boat, Coach & Rail

Trains to and from northern Greece, the Peloponnese and abroad operate out of Larissa Station, which is accessible by metro. Buses are often faster and cheaper than trains, and operate from Terminal A (100 Kifissou Ave.) to the Peloponnese and western and northern Greece, and from Terminal B (260 Liossion St.) to central and northern Greece. Boats to and from the Cyclades operate out of Piraeus (accessible by bus and metro). Schedules change daily but can be checked at www.greekferries.gr or www.gtp.gr.
