Cheap flights to Athens
Athens, what can you say about Athens: cradle of Western civilization, Europe’s oldest city, birthplace of democracy, and home to the iconic Parthenon.
Well, that’s just for starters, add to this that it is also a modern and sophisticated metropolis, one of the world’s greatest cultural centres and a city with a vibrant street and nightlife and you’re pretty close to the mark.
Whether you are coming to Athens for a city break, or just passing through on the way to one of Greece’s many islands, this capital city will not fail to impress.
Being the country's capital city, Athens holds the biggest parade to celebrate Ohi Day on 28 October every year, involving the full military razzamataz and hordes of marching school kids.
One of the easiest and most rewarding day trips is down to the tip of the Attic Peninsula, where the superbly preserved Temple of Poseidon at Sounion is a great place to watch the sunset.
