A thorough reconstruction has turned the palace into one of the best hotels in the world, distinguished by European service of the highest standard. In the past, the hotel became an asylum for King George II … Open Weekend in Athens in original style If you like walking and find exploration of the mountains amusing, there is one more entertainment in Athens for you — ascension to Mount Parnitha.
This is the highest mount in the city, so a climb to it normally lasts a whole day, after which travellers are usually offered to sleep on the top.
Such a trip will be very interesting as sides of the mount are covered with dense pine forests. It is possible to buy tickets on the spot at the ticket counter but in July and August you should book your bus trip ahead of time because seats are sold out more often than not. Tickets are usually a bargain compared to other modes of transportation, so bus hopping around Greece could keep your entire vacation under-budget.
You will have to check you luggage. Right next to the parked bus that you plan to travel with you will find a scale and someone who can weigh it, tag it, and put it in the bus stowaway area. Stay with your luggage at all times and note which side of the bus it has been stowed so you can easily get it when you get off at your destination. You can take a small backpack in the bus cabin, but storage there is limited.
It is well connected with the Attiko Metro the Athens subway. As you exit the train station you will find plenty of taxis waiting in line for arriving passengers.
Always wait your turn and take the first taxi in line. Trains in Greece are notoriously inefficient so not many tourists prefer to travel that way. To get to the northern Peloponnese from Athens you should use the Proastiakos train.
It is safe, clean, punctual and connects all major areas of Athens with subterranean and open air trains. You can get around comfortably by Metro, by bus, or by tram where you can use the integrated ticket. You must cancel your ticket as soon as you enter the first mode of transportation and keep it with you at all times.
The Attiko Metro connects the center of Athens to the suburbs, and to other transportation hubs like the airport, the train station, and the port of Pireas.
Each Metro station is adorned with the art of contemporary Greek artists, and in certain cases the subterranean station walls offer glimpses of ancient artifacts.
For example, the Monastiraki station has an open area where one can see the ancient sewer pipes.
The Syntagma station has on display a host of ancient artifacts, unearthed during the construction of the Metro station there, and a glass-wall with a representation of a subterranean cross-section with embedded artifacts and graves.
The Acropolis station sports copies of the Parthenon sculptures.

City Busses The entire city of Athens is also served by a labyrinthine network of buses, trains, trams, metro, and trolleys. To find a route or a bus number, visit the Athens Urban Transportation Organization but be prepared for long searches. Better yet, use google maps to search for bus routes.
Last, we advise that visitors never attempt to rent and ride a moped, four-wheeler, or motorcycle in the streets of Athens unless you like living dangerously.
Driving Around Athens Traffic in Athens is notoriously bad and congested so driving in Athens is not recommended, especially since there are better alternatives.
Read more about driving in Athens. Where to Eat You will be bumping into eateries everywhere around the popular areas listed above, but you will find the most enchanting restaurants with views of the Acropolis in the Monastiraki and Plaka districts.
Tip: Rooftop bars and restaurants around Monastiraki offer better views and "selfies" of the Acropolis. The entire section of Adrianou pedestrian street that starts behind Monastiraki station and ends at Thesion metro station, is lined with cafeterias and restaurants sandwiched between ancient Athenian ruins and with good views of the Acropolis. Our favorite spot is MOMA restaurant.
Yes, the bathroom! Not unlike several other restaurants in the area, the building that houses MOMA was built on top of ancient ruins, and you can see them under the glass floor of the basement bathroom.
How is that for a unique experience? For fresh fish restaurants, take a taxi to the little port called Microlimano near Pireas where you will find many pricey fish tavernas overlooking the quaint fishing port.
Day Trips from Athens While Athens itself can fill a complete itinerary of exciting venues and things activities by itself, there are several trips worth taking around the capital.
Sounio Sounio is about one hour drive from the center of Athens through the coastal road and can be done in one afternoon or morning. It would take about 45 minutes to get there, and many visitors prefer to go in the afternoon to watch the sunset from the ancient ruins. There is a cafeteria where you can have a light meal or a drink with the moon over temple of Poseidon in your view.
Click here to visit our Sounio travel guide. Tip: Keep the Sounio visit for you last night in Athens, and plan to watch the sunset from the Temple of Poseidon. It would be the perfect exclamation mark to your holiday! These are extensive archaeological sites which require at least one hour for each visit, so our advice would be to only opt for a day trip if you have no other option.
Otherwise, we would advise at least an overnight stay in Delphi and a three-day trip in the Argolis. Going to Delphi for a day-trip from Athens would make for a really long day, mainly because the road to Delphi is only partially highway, and the longest part alternates between rural and mountain roads. We would therefore recommend that you make Delphi a destination in itself for at least one overnight.
Public transportation would not be a good option unless you stay in Arachova or Delphi overnight, and there is no train connection with Athens. The Museum of Delphi houses some of the most important artifacts from ancient Greece.

This afforded new insight into the city's ancient topography, through unprecedented infrastructure development combined with the study and preservation of archaeological data. Exhibitions of ancient artifacts or replicas are found at a number of metro stations, including Monastiraki and Syntagma.
