Koropi is separated from Athens by the Hymettus mountain range, and connected to the city by the Metro, suburban trains and Motorway 6. It is home to one of the country’s oldest football clubs, Koropi F.C, and also to the new training facilities of the Panathinaikos football club.
Koropi is most notable for its proximity to Athens International Airport, which also goes by the name “Eleftherios Venizelos”.

Greece driving tips
● As in the rest of continental Europe, in Greece cars drive on the right-hand side of the road and overtake on the left.
● All drivers and passengers must wear seatbelts. Children under the age of ten are not permitted to travel in the front seat.
● Speed limits are generally set at 50 kilometres per hour in urban areas, 110 km/h on open roads and 120 km/h on motorways.
● The blood alcohol concentration limit for drivers in Greece is 0.05%. It is always a good idea to avoid drinking completely before getting behind the wheel.
● Greece has several toll roads, mostly long-distance motorways which help to cut down on travel times. They can be paid in cash.
Parking in Koropi and Athens
Finding a carpark in Koropi is unlikely to be an issue, although parking at the metro station can be at a premium. If you are driving into Athens rather than using public transport, be prepared to pay for a spot in a parking building - these are either privately owned or operated by the municipality, with varied fees.
