Athens Metro and Railway Train of Athens

athens metro - metro logo athens metro - athens metro pictures

In my opinion, the metro is the most useful and quick transportation mean of all. I usually avoid using my car wherever I know the metro can take me and this way I donít have to worry about finding a parking space. The metro stations are beautiful and different and the train and metro lines are interconnected so where the metro canít go, there is always a train line taking you to your destination (in Athens and the suburbs). The train of Athens moves on a line serving the public for many years connecting the port of Piraeus, meaning the southern suburbs, to Kifissia, the northern suburbs of Athens.

Metro-Train Interchanges

There are three interchanges of metro and train, one in Omonia square, one in Attiki and another one in Monastiraki. Omonia is in the center of Athens so if you come to Athens by boat you can take the train from the port of Piraeus, the train station is only a few minutes away and then stop to Omonia square either to find your hotel or to change lines by taking the metro this time, leading you to any place you need to be.

How to get to the airport by metro

To go to the airport you will take the blue line 3 of the metro heading towards Airport. It consists a continuation of the suburban railway which will take you to the airport really quickly.
