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.

  • Nice clean station, but especially great Museum for free with showcases displaying the artifacts found during construction work in the same station. Also all that is focal point for the metro over to Parliament, a huge economic and convenience for tourists: terminus of the X95 bus to the airport with only 6 euros in 45 minutes.

  • This station is nice and clean, but I avoid using it cause it's too far to walk to the platforms,the Monastiraki station is a lot better, there you walk maybe 1 minute to your train, not 4- 5.  more »
