All major transportation services are available, including international airports, light rail trains, subway, trams, buses, rental cars, tour groups, and drivers for hire.
In Athens, the metro has three mostly underground subway lines: 1-Green, 2-Red, 3-Blue. The blue line connects to the ATH airport and takes approx 45 min to reach the city center. Roundtrip is 18€ or 10€ one way. Light-rail, trollies and buses are also available in the Athens area.
Visas are not required for many international visitors, including those from the United States.
The currency in Greece is the Euro.
As perhaps the country’s most sought-after landmark, the Acropolis gets busy in a hurry. So consider going right at 8a for the opening or 5p-8p after cruise ship crowds depart. The Parthenon and other ruins on the Acropolis are beautifully lit at night. There are two entrances: the grander of the two is the southwest entrance off of a broad plaza.
Both the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum offer various discounts. The real money-saver, however, comes on Sundays in the off-season months when admission is free, along with some national holidays.
Buying roundtrip tickets on the metro or the funicular will save you 10-15%.
