Transportation within Athens
If you are in a hurry, the best way to get around the center of Athens is with a taxi, which can be flagged down from any street corner. Taxi fares are still among the cheapest in the world. The cheaper way is by taking buses and electric trolleys. The mini buses run through the center of Athens and one is even free. The number 150 mini bus, which stops at red signs every two blocks and there is no charge, goes up busy Stadiou Street and connects one from the two major squares of the capital, Omonia and Syntagma. The bus also takes you to the Monastiraki Flea Market and ends up at the Athens Food Market on Athinas St. The other two mini buses, numbers 100 and 200, one must purchase a έ 0,45 bus ticket. The 100 goes up Academias St., makes stops at Syntagma Square and Omonia, and also go to the Athens Food Market and Monastiraki.
The 200 makes its way through the same streets, but also visits the plush Athens district of Kolonaki (where there are many exclusive shops) and ends up at the Pedion Tou Areos Park where one can take buses to places such as Rafina, Porto Rafti, Oropos, Marathon and Cape Sounion.
Trolleys are a big help to get to many of the sites within Athens. For example, if you wish to go to the National Archaeological Museum on Patission St. from Syntagma Square, on Panepistimiou St. or Amalias Av. take trolleys numbered 2, 4, 11 and 15. Fare for trolleys is a έ 0,45 ticket, the same for the buses. The trolleys do not stop exactly at the museum, but at the Athens Polytechnic Institute, just half a block away on the same side of the street.
