How to get to Athens & Greece

By land, there are road connections from Turkey, Bulgaria, Albania and Macedonia. There are also trains from Macedonia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey. Travelling to Greece on an Inter-rail or Eurail pass does not necessarily entail travel through Macedonia, however, as the ferry-crossing from Italy is often included in the ticket.

Greece has 16 international airports and has air links to every major city in Europe. In addition, there are direct flights to and from the USA, Canada, Australia and various Asian cities. There are also frequent flights to/from Istanbul and Sofia. Cheap charter flights are available from London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris to Athens, Thessaloniki and some of the islands. However, conditions apply; if you take a side trip to Turkey you may not be allowed to use the return portion of your charter-flight ticket.

Perhaps the cheapest fares are offered from
Easyjet which flies from Luton Airport, England to the new Spata Airport (Airport Eleutherios Venizelos).

Situated 27 kilometres north-east of central Athens, access to the airport is via Attiki Odos, a six-lane ring road. As this is only partially completed, however, a large part of the journey is through smaller roads. Average journey times vary from 40 to 90 minutes and there is a €0.24 toll to enter Attiki Odos

Parking at the airport is situated within easy reach of the terminal building, with a frequent shuttle bus service in operation.

Taxi fares for the airport are charged at the regular rate of €0.24/km but with a €1.17 starting fare, €0.30 for luggage and €1.00 for the Attiki Odos toll. The average cost of a taxi ride from central Athens to the airport is around €15.Taxis are available at the taxi rank immediately outside the Terminal, 24 hours a day.

Two express buses serve the airport on a 24-hour basis, the E95 departing from Syntagma Square in central Athens every 25 minutes and the E96 departing from Karaiskaki Square near Piraeus port every 20-40 minutes.

A third express bus, the E94, runs from the Ethniki Amyna metro station to the airport every 16 minutes from 6am till midnight. The €2.94 ticket is valid for ONE journey to or from the airport and unlimited journeys on Athens buses, trains, trolleys and metro for the rest of the day.
