Transport

Find info on hitchhiking at Hitchwiki.

Public transport tickets cost EUR 1.20 (full price) or EUR 0.60 (students) and are valid for 70min after first validation. As an act of solidarity, partially used tickets are left on the validating machines, escalators, etc. If you find one, take it. The time of first validation are the last 4 digits printed.

The public transport is almost not controlled, except the metro intersections (Syntagma, Omonia, Attiki, Monastiraki), where they hide behind the turns of the connecting corridors.

If they catch you without a ticket, give them your passport, but don't pay the fine. Till now, nobody saw their fines redirected to their countries.

Taxis are also quite okay, for about 1 euro per km, so if you're in a group it could even be cheaper to get a cab.

Archeological sites are overpriced and often close early. Please add good tips ;)
