I was reading the great thread for transportation from airport-->acropolis area and I wanted some input on our own aiport transfer, but didn't want to just piggyback on that thread and confuse everyone.
We will be arriving in Athens 6/8/15 around 3:30 pm after 4 days in Santorini for my sister's wedding. "we" are me, my husband and our 18-month old son. My husband and I are good travelers; I've lived in Spain and Sweden and my husband and I did a great trip driving trip in Ireland 2 yrs ago. (my parents will also be with us...they are not quite so seasoned, but I'll try not to worry about them, just us, they will probably opt for a cab).
A few other bits of information: We will have a stroller, 1 large rollerbag, 1 carryon roller bag, a crossbody carryon. I can put my crossbody purse and camera inside any of the other bags.
We are staying at the A for Athens hotel in Monastiraki, address Miaouli 2 - 4, Athens 10554, Greece
I originally picked the location for its easy access to the metro. We are not bringing a carseat for our son so I wanted to stick with public transportation as much as possible. From looking at the Metro map, we can take the blue line from the airport directly to Monastiraki.
I'm comfortable on European public transportation (rode the Metro daily in Madrid and Stockholm during my 5 month and 6 week stays), but just worrying a little due to us looking out for our son and our luggage. I'm just looking at all angles and all transportation options, including bus information. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.
Thank you so much in advance! We are looking forward to our trip....just trying to hammer out the last details!
