Athens Vacations

Athens, the capital of Greece, hosted the first Olympic Games, and was again the host in 2004. The Acropolis and Parthenon are important historical attractions in the city, with street markets and tavernas offering further attractions. The main attractions are all in a compact area, and the best way to see the city is on foot. Delta Airlines flies from New York (JFK) and Atlanta to Athens, with Olympic Airlines also flying the New York to Athens route.

Athens exudes a unique charm, its lively character winning over tens of thousands of visitors every year. Street markets, vine-covered tavernas, souvenir stalls and ancient monuments all form a conglomerate with buildings old and new in this city, which one out of four Greeks call home. For tourists the greatest advantage is that most attractions are accessible on foot in the central area around the landmark Acropolis. Walking is the best way to soak up the Athenian atmosphere because the traffic can reach nightmare proportions.



Athens Attractions


Ancient Agora Athens

Clustered below the Acropolis (enter from Odos Adrianou, east of Monastiraki Square) is the remains of the Agora, ancient Athens' commercial and civic centre, where once walked and talked the great philosophers Socrates and Plato.


National Archaeological Museum Athens

This is the largest and most popular of Athens' many museums, and is usually very crowded.


Piraeus Athens

Although not really attractive to tourists, the confusing, bustling port of Athens is the departure point for hundreds of island ferries and cruise ships, so most tourists pass through it while visiting Greece.
