GETTING TO THE VENUES

The Hybrid City 2015: Data to the People conference will take place at the historic building of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, as well as at the main building of the Faculty of Communication and Media Studies. Both building are located in the center of Athens and are served by Line 2 of the Athens Metro (colour code: red). The Metro station is “Panepistimio”. Attendants arriving directly from the airport will have to change at “Syntagma” station to Line 2. “Panepistimio” is one stop away. Alternatively, there are numerous buses and trolley buses heading to the venue through Syntagma square.

The Metro service runs from 06:30 till 23:30. Tickets cost approx. 8.00 Euros. Please be advised that if you take the last service, it may not be possible to change to another line once you have reached Syntagma. Also, to reach Syntagma, you need to take the Metro train. Suburban railway trains also depart from the airport, but they bypass Athens altogether.

 

 

Alternatively, you may reach Syntagma by bus. Take bus no. X95 from the airport. The bus terminates at Syntagma. From there, you can walk to the venue (approx. 10 mins). Alternatively, there are many bus and trolley bus lines that pass through Syntagma and Panepistimio. Bus tickets to and from the airport cost approximately 5.00 Euros.

You may also take a taxi from the airport. The fare may range from approx. 35 to 50 Euros depending on the time of day. We suggest that you ask for a receipt upon payment.
