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.
 

Check out this beautiful view from Athens

At the top of Athens, you can see all the way across to Lycabetus hill. This view is one of the best I’ve seen, I will never get tired of Athens. 27BE11C9-C9CC-4645-9EC4-E212C5DE1308.jpeg

Take a boat instead of driving to Porto Cheli!

I've seen so many people rent cars and drive all the way down to Porto Cheli from the Athens airport. While this is a great option if you prefer to drive, many people overlook taking a boat because it takes just a little bit longer. The reality is that taking a boat is much cheaper, and you also can be a lot more comfortable since you're able to walk around the deck, get snacks and coffee, and use the bathroom. Personally, I love taking the boat, because I also like to visit Hydra and Spetses when I am there and it's much easier to take boats to both of those islands as well.

View of the Acropolis from Thisseio

Thisseio is a great place for cafes and rooftop bars and restaraunts that have stunning views of the acropolis both during the day and at night. This picture was taken from Thisseio View, a cafe named perfectly for one of the best views in the city. The food is pretty good, nothing amazing but definitely worth going for a drink and a snack.

Check out Vouliagmeni for classy beachside restaurants

Vouliagmeni is about half an hour from Athens by car and is a great place for beachside dining. I find that this area has amazing views and is much less crowded than Athens. I haven't been to any beaches there, so please let me know if there are good spots to swim nearby. I usually go for dinner if im staying in Athens and then take a taxi back. My favorite spots are Ithaki and Lavros. :) Check them out!
