DESCRIPTION
At the end of XIX century the Greek capital opened its first tram network (horse tram, 1882), which was totally electrified (1906). In the first decades of XX century this network had a great expansion, but after the second world war it was constantly reduced before being totally closed (1960).
Athens new tram network opened in 2004 before the Olympic Games, in order to integrate the metro system with a ground level service. Metro and tram interchange at Syntagma (metro lines 2 and 3), Neos Kosmo and Fix (metro line 2). The modern tram track consists in a common section running from the city centre (Syntagma) to Mousson (passing through Nea Smyrni and Paleo Faliro), where it branches in north-western (Faliriko Delta, Neo Faliro, Peace & Friendship Stadium) and south-eastern (Alimos, Helliniko, Glyfada and, since November 2007, Voulas) directions.
Tram network is also connected to suburban railways (line 1) at Peace & Friendship Stadium.
