I have three days in pireaus. Is there public transit to Athens, specifically, the Acropolis. What else is there to see or do in Athens?
Actually, the public transit in Athens is very good. Taxi is also very reasonable. Try taking the Metro to Acropolis station or to Monastiraki. Those stations are both close to the Acropolis and the shopping district just underneath the Acropolis. There are also lots of terrific restaurants and cafes in the Monastiraki area, all with a view of the Acropolis. Right outside the subway station. over 9 years ago
If you stay away from the American chains like McDonalds, you will find that it is hard to get a bad meal in Athens. Almost any local taverna or cafe will serve a good, inexpensive meal. over 9 years ago
What is the best way to get to the acropolis and plaka from Athens, more specifically the coral hotel?
Because your hotel is in Paleion Faliron, there is no Metro station nearby, so you have to take a taxi. The alternative is to take a taxi to the nearest Metro station and get off at Acropolis. The Metro is pretty good. If your hotel has a shuttle to the downtown, ask them where the Metro is and take that. over 9 years ago
