Is metro running from airport to Acropolis area?

Hi- the last 2 times I have been to Athens the metro was not running from the airport to the Acropolis area. We have a hotel near there. Does anyone know if if is running now or will be May 31st?

Hey and welcome islandgirl04:-) You don't mention when the 'last time was';-) The Blue Line runs direct from the airport to Syntagma Square..you'd need to make a train change there for 1 quick/short stop over to Akropolis Station on the Red Line in the direction of Aghios Dimitrios..piece of cake! Do note though that the metro does not operate at night from about midnight till 5a or so..the Express bus X95 runs 24X7 from airport to Syntagma Square..from there, you can cab it..or walk..depending on how you're feeling at the time..how much luggage you've got in tow;-) EnjoY!

My pleasure islandgirl04:-) FWIW, the metro was definitely in operation at the time you mention so don't know why you weren't able to utilize it..maybe there was a strike..or you were traveling late night..or something?;-) Anyway, it really is a piece and cake and joy in comparison to what we call subways here in NYC..lol!! Keep us posted..keep enjoyin'!

Metro operation between ethniki amyna station and the airport was suspended for about 6 months ( I think it was back in 2009 ) in order to enable construction for agia paraskeui station.
