We decided to take a plane from Santorini to Athens instead of a ferry. Does the airport shuttle take us anywhere near the Divani Palace Acropolis? If so which stop should we choose to get off the shuttle? Your help is appreciated. Margo

The closest you can get on the Airport Express Bus #95 is the corner of Amalias and Vasilissis Olgas Streets but you'll have to keep a sharp eye out for that intersection. The end of the line is Syntagma Square, not much further. From there you can walk a mile to the hotel or take the Syntagma Metro Station Red Line Metro 2 stops to the Akropolis Station and walk the rest of the way, about 1/4 mile. You can also take a taxi from Syntagma, but beware of the taxi ripoff artists. Any other direction would be wrong.

When you get off the bus at Syntagma walk DOWN to the corner (Filellinon Street) and catch a taxi or bus #10) going to the left (it's a one-way street).

The Airport Bus leaves the airport every half-hour 24/7. The fare is 3.2 euro each. Buy your ticket at the outdoor kiosk near exit door #5.

Here's a map of Central Athens so you can orient yourself. Note "Sindagma" Square near the Parliament Building, and the "Akropolis" Metro Station and the intersection of Amalias and Vasilissis Olgas Streets near the word "Makrigiani" printed in bold blue letters at the bottom of the map.
