Do you know how many places in the world are named Athens? There are a lot! But we’re thinking of one in particular. We’re thinking of the Athens that’s the capital of Greece. You know, the place with the Acropolis and tzatziki-covered gyros and cold ouzo. Check out Wotif’s sweet deals on cheap flights to Athens and do as the Greeks do—drink ouzo.
Most of Wotif’s flights to Athens land at Athens International Airport (ATH), 44km from downtown. Hop on the metro line at the airport railway station that can take you to the central business district. From there you can ride the buses or take taxis anywhere you want to go. If you’d like to take control of your own mode of transportation, get a vehicle from Wotif’s car hire options and be on your way.
Are you on one of the Athens flights that’s landing in the morning? Sit down at one of the cafes in the Kolonaki district for a breakfast meal of yogurt and pastries.
If afternoon has rolled around when you land, head over to the Acropolis, an ancient citadel. Some of the surviving structures include the Parthenon and the Erechtheum.
Is your plane scheduled to arrive at night? Make friends at the bars in the Plaka neighbourhood. Just remember, the Greeks like to party until the early morning.
Speaking of the Plaka neighbourhood, it is home to some great hotels in Athens. You won’t have an issue finding a suitable café serving up tasty lamb gyros, moussaka and feta cheese. Tons of feta cheese. And you’ll no doubt wash it all down with ouzo, a Greek liquor that can turn your memories into a blur.
