I travelled with my sister in October 2018 on the early train from Athens to Kalabaka. On checking in our hotel I found that my purse was no longer in my bag and assumed, mistakenly, that it had either been stolen on the journey or...More

Better to arrange a taxi service in advance rather than taking the train. The station names are in Greek and English but hard to follow. It is too difficult to watch the station names and watch your wallet or backpack. Just don’t ride it. Athens...More

There is an efficient Airport to City (and other suburban destinations) rail system, which is well patronised, clean and relatively quick. However, Athens is renown for it’s pick-pockets, and I found out personally how this is true and prevalent on the Metro! I was able...More

Keep your hand on your wallet. Try to move near a wall, or find a seat. There are teams of pickpockets on the trains. Riding the trains was very stressful for me. But there is not much in the way of alternatives.

The Athens public transport system is incredibly modern with accurate and easy to read information relating to subway, bus and tram arrivals, routes and line changes. Station names are in both Greek and English and you can get a free subway (metro) map from the...More

The Bad The train from Athens to Kalambaka was too long and mostly delayed (for both return trips). Instead of the scheduled 4h 40-50m, it took almost 5h 30-40m each way! Imagine the ride was already a long one, with the delay it felt unbearably...More

Good and effective system. Easy to find your way around, the signs ok. There are a lot of trains and waiting time is usually short. It was easy to find your way around, change trains, and to find the target. The price is reasonable.
