Communication Maps

Athens maps will help you very much in moving around the city. They are available at the airport.

Carriage under the Acropolis

If you wish to visit the Acropolis, and do not necessarily have the strength to climb the mountain in 35 degree heat, it is possible to shorten the route by using the "carriage"
The station with carriages is located on the Monastiraki metro station (Monastiraki Square), near Omonia, the heart center of Athens. A ride costs 4 euros per person and lasts about 40 minutes.
You can visit the temple and then return to the same carriage stop and get back on the same ticket.
"The train" operates every 30 minutes.
Route: Monastiraki, Acropolis, Plaka, Syndagma (Parliament)

From marina to the center of Athens

You get tram Nr.5.
Destination is Syntagma Square, the last stop. If you want to get to Acropolis, you can go there by walk (about 10 min.) or you can drive one subway station to Monastiraki.
Tickets for the tram are available at vending machines at the station.
(Note: only coins!)
In Greece, the tickets are hour and a half and you can use them, whether we go by tram or metro .

While waiting for a boat

Crews who came to the marina in the morning.

We realize that you are exhausted after a long trip and the temperature in Greece makes waiting more difficult. Therefore, we recommend the beach located near the marina or to satisfy hunger in Xylyno Gyro Pita. (Dish known to you as gyros). The location is marked with bars on the map marina in "gogle earth" under the link "DIRECTIONS"
