Sunshine Express Athens Reviews
Sunshine Express..... Oct 25, 2008
We decided to take a little train that ran through the downtown area..... it was called the sunshine Express and it started at aiolou and andrianou street corner. (Agora square)
It was a 35 minute train ride.... I wanted to ride in the very back of the train ... the very, very last car.... what we didn't realize was the last two cars ran empty so we were conspicuously displayed. Adults didn't seem to get angry ... we don't know why.... and we were envied by all kids under 10 years old.... but ... it was still embarassing.
The train ran past the Tower of the Winds. Temple of Zeus, Hadrian's Arch, Herodes Atticus Theater, Parthenon, Propylaia, the Agora ... All of the things we were supposed to go by we did ...but... they were sooooo far away from us and the trees at the side blocked most views although the announcer kept talking and telling us what we should be seeing....... What the brochure didn't mention was: it went through the crowded shopping area and the restaurant pedestrian areas...
People obligingly squeezed themselves to the side to let the cars pass.... and there we sat in the very last car... .. red faced and mortified that everyone had to move for the train. We finally saw the humor and started laughing... What an experience.... We did get a good giggle out of it but ......... never again......
This cost 5 Euro each.... We can't recommend it although if we had some children with us it would have amused them to ride it... probably.
