  • A metro station. No more and no less. Yes there are (moderate) sights to see and if really interested in archaeology then go to the museums. It is crowded so watch your belongings (pickpockets!). Advantage is if you are coming from the airport, you get off in the center. Tip: From the airport you can also take the bus (X95). Costs: 6 EUR and 65 + reduction: 3 EUR. Do not show ID.

  • It was the first station, in addition to that of the airport, which allowed us to access the bustling centre of Athens. We left around 8am at Syntagma station and took the opportunity to request the 5-day budget ticket on limits when using metro lines. The service was fraquissimus, unclear and little empathic, which led to the linguistic barrier becoming even greater. What we thought was most unfortunate was meeting at the same time as talking about Greek with someone via personal cell phone not paying attention to what they were doing. As a station, syntagma is a huge advantage for the city, making the connection between lines, being therefore quite busy. Unlike many stations, it is equipped with multiple escalators that allow for greater traffic fluidity of people.
