Attiko Metro one of the best subways in the world

The Athens Metro subway, Attico Metro is listed among the 10 best subways in the world, according to a US travel guide.

A report published by Frommers.com entitled “The World’s Best Subways: 10 Top Cities” says that “One of the crowning achievements of this city’s Olympic bid was the creation of Attiko Metro, a system with stations housing archaeological exhibits and items that were uncovered while digging (walls, cisterns, urns, and even sarcophagi). Even if you don’t need to get to any of the 50-plus stations, it’s well worth a visit to Syntagma Square or Akropoli stations to see the relics or Ethniki Amyna station for more contemporary art installations. Though the trains aren’t that modern or efficient, the visual surroundings make it all worthwhile”.
