how to leave Athens by car and price for bus and metro

hello

I'd like to know how to leave Athens by a rented car. We must go north (Chalkis). If I understand I must take highway E94 until exit 8 (atinon-lamias) and than take E75...is correct???

another questions: I'd like to have current prices for go from airport to Athens center by bus or metro. I read that bus cost 5 euro until Sindagma (but after If I need to take metro, I must pay 1,40?)...and metro cost 8 euro single ticket, and 14 euro return ticket...is correct?? thank you

Hi Agnese81, if your starting point is Athens airport or the near by area, the route you have wrote is correct (E94 - exit No 8 to E75 with direction Lamia),

also the costs of the tickets you wrote are correct (bus 5 Euro + 1.40 in case of using the metro and for the metro 8 euro single ticket or 14 euro for a return ticket).

Hello Agnese,

You information regarding Chalkis are correct. Your aim is to reach E75 which is the National road.

E75 begins from Pireaus under the name of Kiffisou avenue. Locate the avenue in google maps and see if it suits you to enter it in one of its intersections.

Using E94 (which is mostly known as Attiki Odos (attica highway) ) can make things a lot simpler but you ll pay a 2.80 euros toll to use it.

From Syndagma, get on vassilisis sofias Ave and continue all the way until it changes name to Kiffisias Ave. Carry on Kiffisias Ave until you ll reach a large roundabout with bridges and underpasses. There you ll enter E94 at intersection 11. Follow direction towards Eleusina (the other direction goes towards the airport) until intersection 8 where you ll enter E75 (choose direction towards Lamia) Theres very clear signage to assist you in the intersections.

If you are hiring from the airport then you will exit from the terminal straight onto the main highway & it is very easy going - especially as being from Italy you will be accustomed to driving on what for us from UK is the "wrong" side of the road! Have some coins or small notes ready for the tolls & you will get along very quickly as all direction & exits are well signed & in both Greek & English (sadly not Italian!).
