  • It is a subway station in the plaza which is the bus stop from the airport. Central Athens. I was surprised to see the exhibition of ruins in the station. There was a vending machine of raw orange juice, and it was the best for one euro.

  • It is also a transit station on the M2 and M3 lines, and is the center of transportation in Athens. The station premises are displaying archaeological artifacts excavated during construction, so if you have time, it's a good idea to take a look.
