Bus or Train.

Bus: Varan or Ulusoy, about 80 US Dollars.

Train: Sleeper train to Thessaloniki, then another train or bus to Athens (a little bit more expensive than the bus - bus is probably the better option.

i remember that I took train because there was not ticket available for bus. I cannot remember the price, but it was not expensive. Confortable and a great experience.
