I caught the ISAP from Omonia to Piraeus and back when staying in Athens and catching a ferry from Piraeus. Fast efficient and cheap service. Look out for pickpockets though, as they do operate. Exercise caution and you will be fine.

Couldn't believe how clean it is, the actual station and the trains. Very modern, super cheap. We took the metro from the Acropolis to the Metrol mall and it cost only 1.20 Euro. Airconditioned, well signed, each station announced - very good
