My return flight leaves Athens at 5:00 AM! I read that the Metro doesn't start running until 5:30 a.m.Our accommodations in the Acropolis area will probably be a "vacation rental" found here on TA, and as such don't know about the availability of a shuttle (this is in mid-September next year).
Total time of 7 nights in Athens, so I think that will be time enough to visit the sights. Should I cut that time short (6 nights in historic Athens) and spend the last night out by the airport? Any recommendations on airport transfers at that ungodly hour, or a place to stay by the airport? Thanks for any advice on this.
