How to get to the beaches

Face it: if it’s summer and if you spend more than a couple of days in Athens, you’ll want to get away from the scorching heat of Athens.

Take the tram It’s the best choice if you head south as far as the Voula beaches. 

Take the bus It might be crowded, hot, sweaty but it’s all part of a summer experience in Athens.
