Athens

 

 

Airport

As every trip, it starts from the Airoport Eleftherios Venizelos.

As soon as you arrive it smells so Greek. The amazing is the service from people, they all are soo friendly and always ask anything you need, you will for sure get the directions and answers onto your questions where to go and how.

From Aiport to the center of the city you may reach 

1. On taxi - cost is maximum 45 euro. 30 minutes takes till reaching the center. Before taking it, say to the driver that you will ask fo the check in the end. If he promise and do not give the check, photo the number of the car and you may go to nearest police station or without coming out from the car open the door and ask people to call the police. Beleive me the sollution will be found and you will not be chitted.

2. On the bus - 6 euro. Bas 95 arrives straight t Syntagma- the center of the city, from where you may take a taxi towards your hotel. 

3. On metro. Metro does not work at night time but more fast then the bus and the cost is 10 euro. approximately in 40 minutes you may reach till Syntagma and from there take the needed transport.
