Flights to Athens

Few, if any, places can boast the historical and cultural credentials of Athens. That's thanks to its rich history – it's the oldest capital city in Europe, was the home to many of the great philosophers and playwrights of the last three millennia, and is one of the oldest cities in the world. Plus, its ancient landmarks are renowned across the globe, such as the Parthenon on Acropolis Hill. Boarding a flight to Athens is like travelling back in time.

But there's more to Athens than its fascinating history, and the modern day city has a lot to offer. Ever since it hosted the Olympics in 2004, increasing investments in Athens’ infrastructure, along with the regeneration of certain areas and dusting off of its hidden gems, have made the Greek capital more tourist-friendly than ever.

There are a huge number of options when it comes to things to do, what to eat and where to stay; everything from five-star traditional hotels that host world leaders to hip and funky hostels are available.

The food is a particular highlight – and small tavernas sit comfortably alongside multi-Michelin-starred eateries that are continually pushing the boundaries of Greek cuisine. High-end treats continue in the upmarket shopping boutiques of Attica or the district of Ermou.

And while this is a city drenched in history, its youthful, playful attributes are demanding attention. The ancient sites are a must-visit – they are revered for a reason – but it's good to make time for simply hanging out in rejuvenated area such as Gazi.

Other hip areas have sprung up offering a vibrant choice of lounges, restaurants and nightlife venues, so staying out into the early hours with the locals is as easy as it is fun. Grab a coffee and a plate of keftedes and watch the world go by, or take in the city as a whole from the vantage point of Mount Lycabettus.

And when you've had your fill of the fun of the city, make your way to one of the beautiful beaches such as Legrena or Votsalakia.

What to do in Athens

Visit the Parthenon

As one of the world’s most recognisable historical structures, getting up close and learning more about this iconic building is a must. It's been a temple, a treasury, a fortress and a mosque during its 2,500-year history. At night the Acropolis sound and light show adds a whole new dimension.

At the top is the chapel of St George and a cafe where you can refresh from the climb. The views are stunning, and particularly dramatic as the sun sets and the city lights up.
