About Route Durations

Don't be fooled, these transfer durations depend on the current traffic too - allow extra time particularly in peak season: June & July but not in August since Athens is empty in August but the rest of Greece is packed. (August and Greek Easter are both excellent times to get to know a much more sedate Athens - Athens hotels are usually cheaper then too)

E94 will take you to the Metro stop of Ethniki Amina (National Defense) where you may connect to other metro stops. It takes about 1/2 hour to reach the metro and the buses leave every 15 minutes. Duration:Quickest!!

Syntagma (Constitution Sq.) and Phaliron station also have direct links with Ethniki Amina Station.

Bus Cost: 3Eu, ticket good for 24 hrs on all other forms of Athens public transportation. You must validate your ticket at boarding time.
