Buses 2 or 4, all take you to the centre of Athens either Omonia square or Syntagma square. Same buses also link with metro (Victoria station). That way you can reach Piraeus port or the airport. Finally from Syntagma you can catch the tram which goes to closest beach "Alimos" or "Voula"
Bear in mind that taxis in Athens are inexpensive, so it will cost around 5-6 euro to get to the centre!
Additionally, very close on foot you can find the suburban buses station. Within one-two hours you can reach other beaches outside Athens.

In the house you can find lots of greek maps, some English books and films/cds. We provide instructions on means of transport and local sightseeings as well as general info on Greek lifestyle. We too live in the center of Athens so can advise on both tourist attractions and genuine local hideouts and cafes, watering holes and tavernas/restaurants.
