From airport to the city
There are several ways to get to the city center from the airport. For example, by buses, running around the clock. No.X93, X95, and X96 for € 6 are suitable for you. The bus stop is at the departure level between exits 4 and 5.
You can also take the metro from the train station near the main terminal. You need a blue line (€ 10 or € 18 for a round trip ticket valid for a week).In addition, there is a special option for tourists – a three-day ticket for all transport, including the airport one (€ 22).
You can get around Athens by bus, trolleybus, tram, or subway. All transport runs from 5 am until midnight. However, there are five round-the-clock routes in the city. Transport operates on a single ticket: for 90 minutes (€ 1.2) or one-day (€ 4.1) and five-day (€ 8.2) travel cards.
Interesting historical places
The Acropolis is one of the best-known landmarks of Athens. Several ancient Greek temples have survived there, in particular, the Parthenon in honor of the goddess Athena and the well-preserved Temple of Hephaestus.
And also visit the Acropolis Museum, where you can learn the history of ancient Athens and see old exhibits that you will not find anywhere else.
On the way back, do not miss the Theater of Dionysus. It was built in the 5th century BC, and long ago, it could accommodate about 17 thousand visitors. Nowadays, tourists like to check the acoustics here: if one person speaks quietly from below, in the place of the orchestra, then on the upper balcony another person will hear every single word.
By the way, the Acropolis hill has a gorgeous view of the city, so we advise you to come here also at night and see an incredible sight.
After fulfilling the main tourist plan, it is time to get to know the modern city. To do this, we recommend walking around the Plaka area. Narrow streets with neatly planted flowers, traditional Greek houses, temples, and taverns – all this will immerse you into the atmosphere of cozy and hospitable Greece and help you relax.
The Greeks have long been considered meals an essential part of the day. Therefore, leisurely lunch is exactly what a day in Athens was created for. Be sure to try the seafood: shrimp, octopus, fish, and squid, grilled or cooked according to traditional recipes.
Many meat dishes are served here: bresaola (veal and pork chops on charcoal), paidakia (mutton ribs). You can also try moussaka (a casserole with meat and eggplant) and avgolemono (chicken soup with egg-lemon sauce).
If you want just to have a snack and then go on a historical expedition around the city, try gyros (meat and vegetables wrapped in pita bread) or souvlaki (a small shish kebab with vegetables and a garnish).
In Athens, accommodation in a hostel costs from € 20, in a hotel from € 25, in an apartment from € 40. It is better to look for housing in one of the historical areas: Plaka, Makriyianni, Monastiraki, Syntagma.
Where to go nearby
If you lacked the historicity of Athens and are interested in further exploring Greek culture, head to the city of Delphi. You can read a lot about it in Greek mythology. For example, according to legend, Apollo chose Delphi as a place for his sanctuary. In addition, Delphi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so it is worth a visit.
And if you have time after all the excursions and walks, go to Vouliagmeni Lake. You will be surprised by transparent and always warm (+25) water. This temperature is maintained by thermal springs.

The main and really impressive effect, which is noted by absolutely everything - is the multi-colored interior lighting, which is selected depending on the phase of flight. The colors change very smoothly within a few minutes and create an inconspicuous calming and relaxing effect during the flight.
In the night phase of the flight, the light is turned off; for comfort, only the pleasant blue Sky Skylight remains, which somewhat resembles the light of the moon. At dawn, when the time to wake up, the color of the backlight changes to orange-pink - the color of the rising sun.
