Is Athens mall just off the highway

Greetings from Corfu! Our next stop is Lefkada and then onto Nafplio.

On the way out of Athens we noticed the Athens Mall on the side of the highway. Daughter wants to go on the way back.

Is it an easy off and easy back on the highway? We'll be on our way to the Airport for our flight to Mytilene and have a few hours to kill. Hubby has done some driving in Athens following family but this time we'll be on our own and if it's too complicated I'd rather bypass it.

Thanks

Hi alpenmicho,

glad you are enjoying your trip!

getting off for the Mall is not difficult - be aware of exit 11 take exit {Kifissias Avenue/OAKA { OAKA is the Olympic stadium There is a large ring {roundabout} you need to take this in the direction of OAKA. There will also be signs for the Mall. Take a few extra seconds at the exit just to make sure...

You might also like to consider visiting the OAKA since you will be practically next to it. See if you can anyway. This is subject to the use of the venue- see part of the famous Calatrava architectural structure before the large stadium is impressive just by itself.

The Mall on the other hand is very easy going, lots of shops, eating options, and entertainment of various sorts. You could easily lose a few hours there.

Have fun

If you don't have time to visit OAKA, keep in mind you can see it (and take photos) from The Mall. Obviously not the same as being there, but closer than most tourists get :-)

Is this the mall that is also close by the Athens airport? I remember reading somewhere that there is a mall easily accessible. I have 5 hours to kill while transiting, and understand getting into Athens might be a stretch. This will be a good diversion.

Here's the Airport's web page about the Retail Center:

There's an IKEA, Kotsovolos electronics store, a factory outlet. Not exactly a "mall."

I think the Panathinaikos shop at OAKA is only open on game days

( hopefully a local can confirm this )

Will you be going into the Athens centre at all....there is a Panathinaikos shop in the heart of Monastiraki at Pandrossou 47
