Athens is a city that breathes with antiquity. Walking among ancient buildings, it isn't easy to imagine that history was being created here thousands of years ago. But today, the city is not just an echo of the past, but also lively streets, noisy bars, and cute restaurants.

There are also daily (€ 4.1) and five-day (€ 8.2) travel cards or the opportunity to save money by buying 2, 5 or 11 tickets at once (€ 2.3, € 5.7 and € 12 respectively).
Interesting historical places
The first thing to do in Athens is to climb the Acropolis, the ancient Greek upper city. Many buildings in the Acropolis are half-destroyed, but this does not change the charm of the place. After all, this is the very place where the life of ancient Athens flourished.
The Acropolis has the largest number of ancient Greek monuments, so on the slopes of the upper city do not miss: Propylaea (marble main entrance to the Acropolis), Theatre of Dionysus (where ancient playwrights staged their plays), The Parthenon (the temple of Athena and probably the most famous monument, thanks to history textbooks) and the Temple of Hephaestus (which has largely come down to us unchanged). As well as other temples: Erechtheion, Temple of Athena Nike, Temple of Olympian Zeus. You can also visit the Acropolis Museum, where thousands of exhibits from ancient Athens are collected.
After this historical immersion, we advise you to get acquainted with the modern city. It is best to do this by walking around the Plaka area. Tiny streets, cozy cafes, cute shops of local masters, Instagram stairs, and Byzantine stone churches – here you can relax from the city noise.
And finally, you can look at Athens from a height. You do not have to go far to do this because the almost 300-meter Mount Lycabettus is right in the center. You can go up on foot or by funicular.
Athens is designed to have leisurely lunches in small cafes. From the local cuisine, we recommend trying moussaka (layered casserole with meat and eggplant); comparing horiatiki salad with Greek salad in Ukrainian establishments; and enjoying the tenderness of avgolemono (chicken broth soup with egg-lemon sauce) and mullus (it's such a small fish).
And if you still need to have a quick bite, take gyros (meat with vegetables, wrapped in pita bread) or souvlaki (a small shish kebab with vegetables and a garnish).
We recommend choosing to live in one of these historical areas: Monastiraki, Plaka, Makrygianni, Syntagma. Namely, from there, it is the closest to the Acropolis and other attractions. Hotels in Athens cost from € 25, hostels from € 20, and apartments rent from € 40.
Where to go nearby
It is worth going to Lake Vouliagmeni for impressions of nature. It has clear water, which thanks to thermal springs has a temperature of +25 in any season. Also, near Athens, there is the mountain range Parnitha up to 1400 m.
And if you feel like continuing to explore antiquity, go to Delphi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

SkyInterior on our sides SkyUp is one of the reasons why it is so pleasant and comfortable to fly with us. This is an integrated approach to the design of the aircraft cabin, which is based on the principles of ergonomics, rationalism and, of course, comfort.
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.
