Athens, the divine city overlooking the sea

By booking a flight to Athens, you're choosing a destination that's brimming with history and bathed in sunshine! Explore the rich historical heritage of the Greek capital and immerse yourself in an atmosphere that's typically Mediterranean.

A flight to Athens takes you to a city unlike any other in terms of historical sites. The Olympieion, the temple of Hephaestus, the Parthenon, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Theater of Dionysus... the monuments have survived the centuries as testaments to the birth of Western culture at the gates to the Middle East. A multicultural city where influences from all different horizons converge, Athens is surrounded by hills, from which visitors can enjoy an optimal view over the city. Take advantage of an ideal spot to enjoy a spectacular sunset, complemented by the view of the monuments blending with the sea and the mountainous terrain.

An exceptional cultural destination, Athens boasts a wide selection of museums. Relive the story of Greece since its origins at the Benaki Museum, and retrace the history of weapons and musical instruments. Byzantine and Christian artifacts can also be found, allowing you to extend your time travels from the end of antiquity to the fall of the Byzantine Empire.

Your travel guide to Athens and Greece will encourage you to savor the delicacies of the local cuisine. Dolmatdakia me rizi, souvlaki, moussaka and feta tiropitakias are among the dishes with quintessentially Mediterranean flavors. Vegetables, fish, meat and cheese: there is something for every palate! To combine gourmet dining with a cultural experience, enjoy a meal in the Acropolis Museum, at one of the world's most notable restaurants.

Stroll through the streets of Plaka, enjoy a shopping spree in Ermou Street, relax on Flisvos Beach... a flight to Athens takes you to a wide selection of activities !
