Getting Around

The two bus stops which will take you too and from the Centre of Athens are only 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Trolley No. 12 will take you directly to Omonia Square or Syndagma Square where you can begin your city tour. There is also the Metro station about a 15 minute walk from the apartment. If you use the Metro Station, you should be aware that every Metro station is a museum in itself , where antiquities found during the excavations for the building of the Metro have been put on exhibition. So it is an experience on its own to use the Metro and get off at each stop to see what has been found.
Also the central bus station for Northern Greece is 15 minutes away so you can continue your journey from here.

Other Things to Note

"Welcome Pickups is a service that provides a very warm, informative and personalized transfer from and to the Athens Airport. The service is offered by vetted drivers who speak excellent english and are trained to give you insights and information for your stay in Athens. The price is the same that you would pay if you get a taxi from the airport line. In order to book you can go to bnb(URL HIDDEN) and add the code "leandroskey11" to book for my bnb directly. Keep in mind though that you need to complete the booking at least 24 hours before your arrival!"
