Description:

Part of this track is the oldest in Athens, dating back to 1869. It runs the length of the Port of Piraeus to lush and pricey Kifissia, with twenty two stops in between. Among the stops, some of the more interesting include the Faliro stop, running directly underneath home to popular Olympiakos football club, Karaiskakis stadium , the Monastriaki and Thissiou stations that lead immediately to the Ancient and Roman agoras and popular flea markets, and the Victoria station, the nearest station to the Archaeological museum.

The Piraeus Station is housed in a nineteenth century building that was restored for the Olympic Games. It gives access to the train museum and the Piraeus Archaeological Museum. The Kifissia Station gives access to the Goulandris natural museum.
