We only went to the square to watch the changing of the guards on the hour. I would advise arriving much earlier than you expect if you’re coming from the touristic center because it takes a lot of navigating to cross the streets and end...More

WE bought metro tickets, and the seller was very polite. Later, we got a little bit lost (this is a big station), so we asked the policemen for help, and they were also very polite and helpful

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,

I didn't see any inside the station itself, but, a quick look online reveals there may still be a third party offering luggage storage "a few meters away" from Syntagma station.
