ATHENS: How to get to Athens city from Athens International Airport
If you are flying into Greece via Athens International Airport, your first port of call is likely to be the historic ancient city of Athens. But once you been through passport control and waited around to pick up your luggage there is very little information around to get you on your way.
Cross the road and turn left and walk along the pavement until you reach an elevator that will take you to a gantry - this will lead right to the railway station.
Keep an eye on the direction signs for the Railway station as at least one of them is pointing in the wrong direction!
Ticket prices are 7 Euros each when you are buying for two travellers, but don't get too confused when you are only presented with the one ticket - this is normal. The ticket will state on it that it is for two travellers
IMPORTANT: Make sure that you validate the ticket using the yellow validation machines before you get onto the train otherwise you may end up with a fine that will be the equivalent of 60 times your ticket price.
The train you will need wil be running on line 3 - not platform 3 as none of the platforms are numbered. Luckily this station is the end of the line and the middle track is the metroline which will lead you into central Athens. It takes just over 40 minutes to reach Omonia station. From there, the length and breadth of the Athens metroline is at your service. To find your destination acquire a suitable map or use a decent app from your smart phone.
