The exhibition center METROPOLITAN EXPO is located at the end of Attiki Odos (see map) and access to it is quite easy given the variety of transportation means, from Metro, to bus or car. Specifically:
There is a metro service to and from the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”. The Athens Metro connects the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” with the city of Athens (Line 3 – Aigaleo / Monastiraki / Doukissis Plakentias / Airport). The trip from the Airport to the center of Athens (metro station: Syntagma) takes about 40 minutes. The metro departs to and from the airport every 30' mins. Ticket prices are €8 for a single (one-way) ticket, and €14 for a return ticket.
There is an express public bus, X95: Syntagma - Athens Airport, servicing the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” and starting from Syntagma Square (Othonos Street). Other buses servicing the airport include: X96 from Piraeus, X92 from Kifissia, and X97 from Dafni. Buses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The buses leave every 40 mins and tickets are available from the bus drivers, from the ticket kiosk at the airport bus departure area and from all the metro stations around Athens. There are only single (one-way) tickets available for purchase at €6 each.
Visitors can access METROPOLITAN EXPO via Attiki Odos Expressway, 2 km after the terminals at Eleftherios Venizelos airport.
