Metro – Athens

The meter from Athens It is relatively recent, it was inaugurated in 2001. It is quite peculiar given that all the stations exhibit pieces that they found when doing the excavations for the system. The Greeks are very proud of him, so they have measures such as not eating or drinking either at the stations or on the train. The meter consists of three lines:

  • Line 1 (M1): Connects the port of Piraus with the northern suburbs of the city, via the city center.
  • Line 2 (M2): Connects the west with the south of the city.
  • Line 3 (M3): Connects the southwest suburbs with the northern suburbs and the International Airport.
