How to find them and rates
Taxi in Athens and most of Greece are yellow coloured, with a taxi sign on top. Some islands as well as smaller towns in the mainland have taxi in silver as well. There are 3 main ways to find a taxi in Greece. First is to just wait on the side of a road for an unoccupied one to pass and raise your hand. This will signal them to stop in order to pick you up. Taxi are everywhere in Greece so this way works most of the time. The second way is to go to a square or central area where a lot of taxis always gather. They’re usually parked in a line and you can enter the one that’s on the very front. The final and most reliable way is to call for a taxi. In this case they come to pick you up wherever you are.
Rates for taxi are not fixed but are based on how long the ride is. It’s also worth noting that after 12 at night and until 5 in the morning, the rate is doubled. The meter starts at €1.20 and the minimum rate for a ride is €3.40. Ride from the Airport of Athens to the city center and vice versa cost €35(fixed) during the day and €50 from 12 to 5 at night.
