Explore Athens

The ancient city of Athens is one of the best preserved archaeological sites in the world. This fascinating open-air museum boasts a feast of famous highlights to devour and since the city underwent a major regeneration program to host the 2004 Olympic Games, it´s easy and cheap to navigate. Stretching 2.5 miles, the tree-lined Archaeological Promenade is the longest and most attractive pedestrian walkway in Europe and links many of the major tourist attractions including the iconic Acropolis and the majestic Parthenon which together with the National Archaeological Museum and the extraordinary Benaki Museum present a stark reminder of the brilliance of the ancient Greeks. But Athens is not all about the ancient monuments. This cosmopolitan metropolis is sophisticated and modern and boasts a rich consortium of shopping opportunities, a vibrant and varied nightlife and some of the best culinary skills in Europe. If you are looking for affordable accommodation in Athens consider renting entire apartments at affordable prices from private owners and enjoy an authentic Greek experience.

When to go to Athens

The weather in Greece is clement all year round and accommodation in Athens is readily available. Bear in mind that the height of summer can be stiflingly hot and busting with tourists so the best times to visit are spring and autumn when the air is crisp and the heat has cooled off a little. You should expect a little rain in winter and although the temperatures are slightly cooler a sweater and a light rain coat is all you will need.

Getting to and around Athens

The most popular route to Athens is by air and flights land in Eleftherios Venizelos airport in Spata. Alternatively visitors coming from central and Eastern Europe can opt for the train through the Balkan Peninsula, or the ferry which leaves from various ports in Italy such as Venice, Ancona, Bari, Brindisi and Otranto.
