Six Hours in Athens

We have a 6 hour layover at the Athens airport later this month. Is there anything to see that's close to the airport in 4 hours? Any suggestions would be great - hate to sit around for 6 hours.

Hey and welcome JandCfromOC:-) If you do indeed have a full 4 hours, you may even want to take the metro into the City for a walk around..a sit down meal and take in some people-watching for a couple of hours..the Blue Line metro takes approx 40 min to get to Syntagma Square..next stop is Monasteraki..loads of outdoor eateries there! There's also a dedicated express bus X95 taking you into Syntagma Square which usually takes about the same time..but of course, is traffic dependent and in this case, may be best to stick w/the metro;-) Assuming here you will be back to spend some time in Athens..Have a great trip..and EnJoY!
