Syntagma Station, Athens

(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Located at the main city square, Syntagma Station provides an ideal starting point for your tour of Athens. This metro station offers a convenient link to the airport and the city's main railway station, and serves as a major transportation hub for public buses, trams, and taxis. From this point you can easily walk to the Greek parliament building or explore the nearby pedestrian-friendly shopping district. Built on the site of an ancient necropolis, the station now doubles as a museum, displaying a small portion of nearly 30,000 artifacts unearthed during the construction of the modern subway system. Syntagma Station is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Athens Edition.
