Overnight stop between Corinth and Athens ?

Travelling up from Kardamili on last day of holiday and will be arriving in Corinth by taxi.

Stay in Corinth or is there somewhere else worthwhile on the rail journey towards the airport for an overnighter before lunchtime flight the following day ?

Any suggestions ? We will be 2 adults an an 18 month old, we are easily pleased and don't want to stray too far from the railway so it's easy to hit the airport.

From what I can remember,there is nowhere really interesting adjacent to the railway line from Corinth to Athens.Depending on what time you arrive in Corinth,you could get the train into Athens and spend you last night there.Otherwise,your plan to overnight in Corinth seems perfectly reasonable.It is not the most interesting place I have ever visited but pleasant enough and would be fine for a one night stay.The station is about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi riide from the centre.The timetable is on www.trainose.gr but it doesnt work all the time.

Yes Corinth is on the agenda. Sounds not unlike Kalamata .? Which we found fine for a wander around and a cafe/taverna stop. Is the port a long way from the centre ?

Does the line not pass Glyfada ?

Unfortunately not, nowhere near.

It's possible to stay along that coast though, just depends how much changing of transposrt you're prepared to do with the little one.

None. Just hoping for somewhere walking distance from station and some lovely Greek traditional food as a send off. Can be anywhere on the line !

After a bit more research and if I am reading the timetable correctly, it appears possible to break our journey at Kifissias ? Initial research shows a journey of about an hour from Corinth to Kifissias, and 20 minutes from there to the airport the following day.

Is my understanding correct, and any advice on hotel/eating/anything else in Kifissias ?
