Explore Athens Using the Public Transport

Greece, Athens Guide (B): Explore Athens Using the Public Transport

If you found accommodation in the center of Athens, you might not even need to use the Athens public transport network. However, if the place where you’re staying in Athens is farther away or you wish to explore more than the center of the Greek Capital, using Athens public transport is a great and affordable option!

- The Anonymous Athena Card is a rechargeable plastic card, valid for a duration from 90 minutes to 5 days. It can also be used for getting to and from the airport by using the public transport network.

- The Personal Athena Card is more suitable for people who are planning a longer stay in Athens. It is a rechargeable plastic card with the owner’s photo, valid for a duration from 90 minutes to one year.

(There is also a 3-day tourist ticket at € 22.00, but I personally don’t find the logic in buying it, considering the cheaper options listed above.)

The Athens public transport tickets can be bought in subway stations, tram stations, and bus ticket stalls. You can also find them in train stations at at newspaper stands, as well. Please note that the Anonymous Athena Card can only be bought from Athens Transport ticket offices. You can find them in subway stations. Also, if you are interested in obtaining a Personal Athena Card, you have to present your passport when requesting one at an Athens Transport ticket office. ......
