What’s the best way to get around Athens?
The many public transport options make travelling in and around Athens a breeze. First, for less than a couple of euros, you can get on one of five tram lines that run from the city centre to neighbouring towns and along the coast. You could also take the bus, but keep in mind it’s a little slower than the tram. Several underground train links are available as well; however, it sometimes does get hot and crowded. Finally, if all else fails, the abundance of taxis rounds out the transportation options.
