Athens tramway

The tram network connects central Athens with the coastal suburbs of Faliro and Voula. It takes approximately one hour to get from Syntagma to the final seaside stop at Voula. The tram connects to the Metro and overground train at four stops: Syntagma, Syngrou/Fix, Neos Kosmos and SEF (Peace and Friendship Stadium in Faliro). See the timetable here.

The route between Syntagma and Neos Kosmos is currently unavailable so the nearest tram stop to and from Voula is Neos Kosmos.

The tram operates from 5:30 am to 1 am daily and until 2:30 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
