The construction of the metropolitan railway of Athens, in the 1990s, was the occasion for the largest excavating program that ever took place in Greece. The excavations brought to light more than 50,000 findings, part of which are exhibited at the stations of Evangelismos, Syntagma, Monastiraki, Panepistimio.

Many are the stations that host works of contemporary artists creating the sensation of a true art hall to the Metro.
