Travel Link Directory
from Athens Eleftherios Venezelos Airport to Athens-Taxi
walk out the door, you can't miss them! There will be a long line
of yellow cabs up or down the terminal, depending on which
door you exited. Next to the taxis will be a line of people (sometimes
longer than others, but it moves fast). There is a director, calling
the cabs forward as needed. The driver will load your bags in the
back and then take you on your way.
are cases of being overcharged, but it happens less with cabs from
the airport since they are more easily traced(than if you hail a
cab on the street in Athens). The fare should be around 25 euro
depending on the number of people, bags and where you want to go.
If you ask for a reciept and make sure that he puts his taxi registration
number on it you can be pretty sure that he'll be honest.
about a 30-60 minute ride to Athens depending on the traffic and
about 30 minutes to Lavrion(if you're chartering
a yacht or going to Kea). For the first 1/3 of the trip you'll
be on the highway cruising through the olive groves(or what used
to be the olive groves, but now is getting built up with houses,
shops and apartments). Then you'll go through the pass between Mts
Hymettos and Pendeli and drive just above the base of Mt. Hymettos.
As you come around the bend you will have a great view of Athens
as you drive above the skyline. This part of the journey will be
fastgoing and you'll think "ah... we made it without hitting
you make that first right turn off the highway, there's a good chance
that things will change. Once you descend upon the city, the traffic
begins.... and it can be slow going... but it will give you the
chance to look closely at the buildings, shops, people and landscape....
and as you're slowly winding your way through Athens it will suddenly
dawn on you..."I'm finally in Greece!"
the first taxi ride into Athens, but on occassion I've had drivers
who smoke or drive a little too wild for my liking. If you want
a known entity, you may want to look into hiring George, The Famous
Greek Taxi Driver.
Sunset at theTemple of Poseidon
you're going to Pireaus to catch the ferry to an island you have
the option of taking the taxi through Athens or taking a longer
and slightly more expensive route which would be on the highway
along the sea. It's a scenic view and about half way there you will
pass the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion perched on the cliff overlooking
4. George, The Famous
(or friends of George, The Famous Taxi Driver, if George is busy)
