Getting Around Athens

The best way from Piraeus to the center of Athens is to take a quick taxi ride to the train station at Piraeus (about 5 euros, max). The station operates on the green line; take it to Monastiraki, then change to Syntagma (the blue line). Cost is about 70 cents (euro). It takes about the same amount of time as if you cabbed it in. A key tip:  when using mass transit, you must validate your ticket in the orange canceling machines. Keep your ticket until you reach your destination, as inspectors at random check that you have it. They are strict about fining offenders, including tourists. Driving in Athens is not recommended.

If you opt for taxi transport, be prepared. While taxi fares are posted at the port terminal (by destination they range from about eight to 12 euros into various points in Athens), the ever-so-charming drivers will try to convince you that the fares are per person (they're not!). If there is a meter, make sure that the number one vs. number two is what shows up (#2 is for post-midnight, double-the-fare trips; if you're traveling any other time you should not pay this).

Taxis operate unofficially on the jitney system, indicating willingness to pick up others by blinking their headlights or simply slowing down. You'll need to shout out your destination as the driver cruises by (or others may shout out a direct destination and you will wind up sharing a cab). And one more thing:  Locals don't tip drivers, but do round up to the next convenient euro. Once you're in Athens, you'll find it a wonderfully walk-able city.
