Athens

Athens is busy and crowded and is spread over many districts. The old quarters of Thisson and Psirri are popular nightlife areas and has a distinctive character with its original charm. The commercial heart of the city is around Syntagma Square which is dominated by the old Royal Palace and has many major hotels and restaurants. Just beyond the city's southern edge is the bustling port of Piraeus which offers a ferry service to the outlying islands.

Athens is a great city for sightseeing - use either the happy train or hoho buses to get around. Plenty of cafes and restaurants - find the backstreet mom and pop places for best value. Athens airport transfers - either use the metro for cheap transport - or a taxi is a set 38 euros including tolls, tips etc. Get up to the Parthenon on the acropolis early in the day to miss the hectic crowds.

The beach is stone then sand as you swim further out, there are a few water attractions, banana ride settee and other water themed rides and paddle boats for children, sightseeing is possible by local bus as Athens central is 45 mins away in the opposite direction which boasts the picturesque Acropolis on a mount and has other ruins surrounding if this is your thing. Athens central is bustling with many shops and restaurants for food and souvenirs and also has a metro line which is cheap and convenient for travel and was 4.50e for an all day pass, and again from the hotel. You have the Poseidon temple which is around 30 mins bus ride which there is a small cafe and toilets but nothing more, but will say if you go around 7pm you will witness the most amazing sunset you have ever seen, there is only one shop on the hotel site and the nearest I found was a mile away and only sold drinks, cigs and small items, and personally feel if you were to stay here half board would find this very difficult or extremely expensive with a small family or as a couple for a cheap vacation as the nearest market is in the next town and not walking distance.

Things to See

One of the most famous sights in Athens has to be the Acropolis which rises out of the centre of the city. You can easily walk from the Acropolis to many other main attractions and at the same time browse the main shops or enjoy a drink at one of the many cafes along the way. Key sights include the Ancient Agora (marketplace), Kerameikos, the first cemetery and the National Archeological Museum.

Out and About

The best views of Athens can be found from the top of Lykavittos Hill where on a clear day you will see the whole city, the port of Piraeus and the island of Aegina and the Peloponnese. If you want to escape the city head out to the beaches south of Athens which can easily be reached by buses or the metro.

Quick Facts

Flight Time: London to Athens takes approximately 3 hours 25 minutes.
