60-second guide to Athens airport

In its own head

"We're a city shaped by the gods. From the Acropolis to the Temple of Poseidon, there are so many historical gems to discover in the Greek capital."

But in reality

There's more to this city than ancient monuments. Athens is fammed for its buzzing nightlife, luxurious shops and spectacular promenades, and it's easy to navigate.

The vibe

Whether you're a sun-seeker, a history buff or merely in the market for a traditional taste of Greek life, Athens has it all.

The natives

Social life plays a pivotal role in Athenian society - you'll often see locals debating the latest events over a coffee or taking the family out for an evening stroll.

The climate

At the height of summer, temperatures can reach up to 40°C. Do bring a jumper though - it can get a little chilly in the evenings.

The local speciality

Visit one of the city's many tavernas and choose from a mouth-watering array of traditional dishes - fried calamari, stuffed tomatoes, taramosalata and, of course, Greek salad.

The celebrity

Athenian celebrities don't get much bigger than the forefather of philosophical thought, Socrates, who shared his wisdom with local inhabitants during the 5th century BC.

Did you know?

The first modern Olympic Games were held in Athens in 1896.

They say

"Rome represents conquest, faith hovers over the towers of Jerusalem and Athens embodies the pre-eminent quality of the antique world, art." - former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli
