Flights To Athens

Get ready to engross yourself in Greek culture, architecture, and history when you check out flights to Athens, one of the oldest cities in the world. When people talk of Athens, Ancient Greece is probably what comes to mind, but there's more to the city than ancient history. Along with historical sites such as the Acropolis, the Daphni Monastery, and the Parthenon, there are also plenty of modern attractions, including museums, zoos, theaters, and sporting events. Vacationers can also soak up the sun's rays on the beaches along the coastline. Once you touch down at Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH), prepare yourself to be immersed in this unique city. With time for both quiet reflections and boisterous outings alike, there's something here for everyone.

Transportation from ATH

There are many hotels near Eleftherios Venizelos that can serve as home bases for you for your adventure in Athens, and most offer a courtesy shuttle service to and from the airport. If you're staying closer to the city, you can choose to rent a car from one of the several agencies at the airport or hire a taxi from the taxi stand outside. In any case, it's a good idea to have a copy of your hotel name written in Greek on hand to show your shuttle driver or taxi driver. Express buses and trains run from the airport into various parts of Athens, making public transportation a convenient option. Once you've reached your hotel and had the chance to unload your luggage, it's time to head out and enjoy everything the city has to offer.

  • Keep your boarding pass and travel ID in an easily accessible place. They'll be the first things you'll be asked to produce by airport security personnel.
  • It's useful to know that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you're wearing one, you may be asked to step back and take it off before proceeding.
  • Laptops, digital cameras and other electronic devices must be placed in separate trays to be X-rayed.
  • Flying with a new perfume or cologne? As long as it's not bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it's placed in a clear resealable plastic bag, you can keep it in your carry-on luggage.
  • Loosen your shoelaces before approaching the body scanner. Depending on the style of shoes you're wearing, security may instruct you to remove them.
  • The list of non-permissible items is forever changing. Have a look at your airline's website to find out what is not allowed on board their flights.
