Athens International Airport (ATH) is about 33 kilometres from the centre of Athens. Taxis are the easiest way to get around and are reasonably priced as well, especially if travelling in a group. You’ll find the taxi rank outside Arrivals Exit 3. They charge a flat rate to the city centre which is more expensive between midnight and 5am.
The Metro Line 3 connects straight to the airport and takes around 40 minutes to Syntagma, the central square in Athens, or an hour to Piraeus port (change to line 1 at Monastiraki). Metros run every 30 minutes from 6:30am-11:30pm. Express buses run 24 hours a day from the Arrivals level. You can purchase a ticket at a kiosk or on board. The X95 goes to the centre of Athens and takes around 45 minutes. The X96 will get you to Piraeus port.
Piraeus port has numerous ferry services to the Greek islands, including ferries to Crete, Rhodes and Mykonos. It is advisable to book online in advance, especially if you’re travelling in summer. Corfu is on the opposite coast to Athens. To get there, you can rent a car and drive across the mainland (around seven hours) and then take a ferry from Igoumenitsa (1-2 hours).
You can also fly direct to a lot of the islands and beyond from Athens with budget airline Ryanair or local airlines Ellinair, Olympic Air or Aegean Airlines.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
