Five Athens metro stations to remain closed on Tuesday due to Obama’s visit

Greek police announced that five metro stations will remain closed as of noon in central Athens as part of the stringent security measures attached to the visit of U.S. President Barack Obama.

Trains will pass from Syntagma, Evangelismos, Megaro Mousikis (Athens Concert Hall), Acropolis and Syngrou-Fix stations without stopping and will reopen after a police order. The blue metro line will also stop its service to and from the Athens International Airport between 10:20 and 11:20.
