To "Evangelismos" area and Hotels

"Evangelismos" is a hospital, which has given its name to a Metro stop (blue line, i.e. line 3), and is near the Hilton Hotel, and the National Gallery:
  • -- The best is to use Metro Line 3 (subway), and get off at "Evangelismos" stop. Timetable: 05:30-24:00. Frequency: 30'.
  • -- Taxis: the taxi stand extends from Door 4 to Door 1 at the Arrivals Level. Fee: 35 or 50 Euro at daytime or evenings, resp., to the University area.
  • -- The relevant Express Airport Bus is X95 (to Syntagma sq.): Get off at the Hilton Bus Stop. Runs on a 24-hour basis.

  • To go to the Hotels from the "Evangelismos" stop, cross Vassilissis-Sofias Ave towards Hilton Hotel:
  • -- For Delice Hotel + Apartments, on Vassileos-Alexandrou Ave (across from Divani-Caravel Hotel): Once you've crossed the avenue, walk past Hilton (leaving it to your left). You'll find it on your left. Here's their website.
  • -- For ILISIA Best-Western : Once you've crossed the avenue, turn left, walk in front and past Hilton, then turn in the first street to the right. Walk one block.
  • -- For Divani-Caravel walk straight down to Vassileos Alexandrou Ave. It is across the street from Delice.
  • To Dept. Informatics & Telecoms

    There's 3 bus lines for which you need a valid metro ticket or a bus ticket: this can be bought at a kiosk before entering the bus. Currently "250" is best as it goes inside the campus and drops you off in front of the department (Bus Stop: 2nd PANEPISTIMIOPOLIS). Alternatively use "224" or the red local free bus, and get off at stop "10th KESSARIANIS", on "Ethnikis Antistaseos" avenue. Turn left and walk 100m.

    If you take a taxi go past Hilton and Caravel hotels, stay on the left at the branch, and continue into the Campus. Less than 1 km past the gate, the department is on your left (at 50m off the road, but you see parked cars). If you reach the big roundabout, you've gone too far.

    Here is a google map to the Dept of Informatics from "Evangelismos" metro stop (or the hotels). See also School of Science here.
