Catch the Coastal Tram Down the Athens Riviera


The Athens Riviera is a coastal area in the souther suburbs of Athens – starting from Piraeus (where you can catch ferries out to the islands from) and down to Sounio.

And if you’re looking for an easy day trip to a seaside suburb, I recommend checking out Glyfada for boutique shops and restaurants, Voula for its small beaches and Sounio to explore the Temple of Poseidon.

There’s a direct link from Syntagma Square to Glyfada on the Athens Coastal Tram which will take you between 45 mins and an hour depending on your destination, and costs €1.40 for a 90 minute ticket. It’s not the fastest way to travel but it is easy! Plus there’s some great views to be had too.
