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.
Stroll down Athinas Street from Omonia Square and visit Athens' most photogenic markets. The buzzing meat and fish markets sit on the opposite side of the road to the colourful flower and veg stalls.
The tiny island of Agistri, which sits opposite Aegina, is a great place to escape to for a swim or wander through it's wooded interior, as the spring days grow warmer.
