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.
The pre-lantern festival known as Apokries culminates on the weekend of February 25-26th, with plenty of dressing up and all sorts of merriment and frivolity on the streets of Athens, especially in the touristy Plaka area.
If you want to escape the summer heat and check out where all the action is, the stretch of coast road that runs through the southeastern suburbs of Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni is lined with restaurants, cafés and clubs.
Winter is a good time to take a bus down to the end of the Attic Peninsula and visit the wonderful temple of Poseidon at Sounion, without having many other people around at all.
