I'm going to be traveling to Athens this summer but I won't be renting a car...how easy is it to get around on the subway?

I love the Athens metro! It's suprisingly clean, and super fast! I really recommend it for getting around :)

The metro is the best! It's a little expensive for a subway, but it's always on time and very useful. I only use it to get to places that are pretty far away. I prefer to walk from place to place when I'm on vacation because I like to see the sites.

We spent so much time going around the stations! In 2004, we spent 3 days in Athens. The metro was fairly new. In most stations, there was a display of the excavation and building. Remember, Athens is OLD!! Dig a hole and find a temple, was the phrase used during the time of getting ready for the Olympics.
So, don't rush! Have fun and go to Monistiraki flea market on Sunday!

It's probably one of the most beautiful subways I've seen!! There's still many sculptures and excavations today, it's so nice to see a part of history in everyday life. If you're not using the subway to get around, you should at least check it out for the artifacts.
