    Public transportation is also one of my biggest concerns when it comes to traveling. Like you, I’ve also relied on them. Lucky for you that you are able to find reliable drivers during your time in Athens. And even with a hiccup, I’m pretty sure is nothing as bad as you will encounter with public transport!

  2. Thank you for the tips, Natalie 🙂 I already visited Greece, but I didn’t have the opportunity to get a taxi because everything was walking distance or the tour picked us up at the hotel. Every time I travel I like to get the taxi driver’s phone number in case I need a ride or to simply have a point of reference by someone that knows the area. – Mariella

    I don’t often find myself in a group large enough to make taking a taxi economically feasible, but when I do, it’s definitely my first transportation choice. Even when I travel solo, I will sometimes treat myself to a taxi ride because it’s often quicker and easier. Great to know it’s an easy way to get around Athens too.

    Storage and Luggage!!!!!!!! You can’t over emphasize that. That’s a major factor why in 10 trips, I board taxis to buses in 7:3. I hardly forget my stuffs and even if I do, it’s traceable. And thanks for featuring Alex, he must be a great guy to have made it to the blog.

  5. This is really great info for anyone travelling around Athens! I mostly used public transport as it was just me and one other, but it’s good to know what to expect, especially if you’re travelling solo or with a family. It’s great to know there’s someone you can trust!

    We don’t have great experiences with taxi drivers and try to avoid them where we can, but sometimes we have to, because it is convenient, especially with our little one. It is great that you did provide Alex details as you had great experiences with him, so other visitors can travel with him to0

    Taxis are great for all the reasons you pointed out! Traveling in groups, traveling with a lot of luggage, and when you’re on a time crunch and need to get from point A to point B without having to worry about switching trains/buses/etc. Most of the time I find myself traveling by myself or just one other so public transportation it is!

    Great tips, Natalie! I was actually just in Athens recently but was only there for a day so walking around everywhere was fine for me. Had I had more time in Athens and wanted to do some day trips, it sounds like taxi is the way to go! I did try taking the subway once in Athens and was quite confused by the system.. not to mention a subway ride from the city to the airport cost me 10 euro! Am I crazy for thinking that is a ridiculous fare??
