Urgent - Need to get from Athens airport to Syntagma Square

Hi

Is the rail line open from Athens airport to Syntagma Square, I read that some works are going on with the line.

What is the easiest and cheapest way to do this without using taxis.

Arriving into Athens at 6.30pm today

Thanks

X95 bus goes straight from the airport to Syntagma.

Alternatively, you can take X94 bus from the airport to Ethniki Amyna station and then take the metro Blue Line to Syntagma.

Hi there

Just to elaborate a tad, the X95 runs 24/7/365, every few minutes, so if one is full, it'll only be a few mins wait till the next one. The one way fare is 3,20 euros and you buy your ticket from the booth adjacent to the bus stop which itself is about 50-60 yards to the right of the main terminal exit

Thanks everyone for your quick replies. This is to help my 22 year old daughter who will be hysterical when she arrives and finds the train line not operating.

I will SMS/text her the details.

Cheers

Our pleasure:-) Am sure she'll find her way around easy enough! The airport is not complicated..but rather a well laid out one-terminal building! Am sure she'll totally enjoy!
