The airport rail will take you all the way into Athens. Just make sure you are aware of everyone around you and keep your luggage close to you. Otherwise, should be all good! I've used this before and haven't had a problem.

Very slow, but easy to use. I once took the metro from the airport to syntagma.

Rail or bus are easy, there are buses that will take you directly to Syntagma square and the rail can take you directly to join the metro

Best hello and welcome to Hellas is a taxi ride from the airport.
BUT MUST BE A REAL GREEK taxi driver not a xenos

It's easy to use and most of the time, it's reliable. I've heard of people having some interesting detours. Some people that I know - one time they were taking a bus to the airport and the driver decided to take a detour to get a coffee without telling the passengers, and everyone was just sitting there on the bus . My friends were nervous they'd miss their flight. The Greeks on the bus weren't bothered and thought it was normal. Personally, I prefer either renting a car and driving myself or taking a taxi.

Which areas in Athens have live Greek music?

I'd love to have the opportunity to see a nice zeibekiko or kalamatiano live! Are there any areas where I can find a good spot with good live music? I really want to get a taste of the culture and have fun!
