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.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
