Vasilissis Amalias Avenue

Vasilissis Amalias Avenue

Vasilissis Amalias Avenue is rather small in length, stretches from the intersection of Eleftherios Venizelos Street (Panepistimiou) and Vasilissis Sofias Avenue, between Syntagma Square and the Parliament, to Vasilissis Olgas near the Hadrianʼs Arch.

Its driving direction is towards the Hellenic Parliament, but if you walk going in the opposite direction you may enter the National Garden, Zappeion Mansion park area and further down the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

This is where the terminal of urban buses going to the International Airport of Eleftherios Venizelos, the Athens Tram Terminal and stations of many Urban Buses and Trolleys are found. Following Vasilissis Amalias Avenue to the south, you will reach Syngrou Avenue, which connects the center of Athens with the southern suburbs by the sea.

Vasilissis Amalias Avenue is named after the first queen of Greece, Amalia of Oldenburg, consort to King Otto.
