The Athens Metro is undoubtedly the most economical and convenient way to get from one place to the other in Athens!
It consists of three lines, the newest two of them are underground and modern while the third, which connects amongst others, Athens with Piraeus and the northern suburbs (Green line Piraeus – Kifissia) exists since 1869 and offers apart from a vintage flair, a lovely view of the neighborhoods and several sites of Athens and the suburbs.
