Travel options in Athens

Traveling to any kind of destination can be an adventure considering the means of transport you choose to travel with. Most of the European destinations are accessible with an array of ways such as car, train and airplane. The way that will save you both time and energy to travel to Athens is by air. Athens' International Airport facilitates many flights from and towards several major European cities.

Greece's urban structure is characterized by a harmonic combination of environmental oasis such as small parks every here and there and urban elements such as roads and buildings. Most of the times parks and recreational establishments are located in the suburbs of the cities. The same infrastructural principle applies for Athens itself. The city is an urban paradise with architectural treasures around every corner with some "greener" parts inside or around the city. Visiting the historical monuments among the nature and parks should definitely be on your list of things to do in Athens.

As visitors you have several options to travel in Athens. The most popular is the Metro. Not only is it a great way to avoid getting stuck in traffic, but some of its stops have more than just thousands of people to show. Specifically, a number of findings that were excavated during the construction of the Metro are displayed at the Acropolis stop.

Another ever-growing mean of transportation to travel in Athens is the bike. Over the last years, several cycling road lines have been included in the city's urban foundation. Both locals and visitors can use them to enjoy another view of Athens and sink in unique images.

Athenians' lifestyle is actually quite stressful. This is why they mostly use the public means of transportation to travel in Athens in an attempt to save precious time and avoid traffic jams. They seem to prefer Metro the most due to its increased safety and timely accuracy. To conclude, Athens is a bustling and lively city with a lot of potential for its visitors. As a result, you should definitely have someone to share this Athens' travel with rather than experiencing its amazing perks alone.

Vintage Fiat 500 Athens Tour

My wife and I only had a few days in Athens so we chose Theodore to show us around in his antique Fiat 500 car! He was kind enough to even drive to our hotel to pick us up as our hotel was in Pireaus, not Athens. We gladly paid a little extra for the pickup which is understandable as Pireaus is a bit of a drive from the Athens tour meet up point. Theodore has a super fun personality and was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Theodore took us to some amazing places thru the city and some that overlooked the Parthenon.. with great views of the city. And doing it all in his Fiat 500 made the tour even more enjoyable!! After viewing the various sights as the sun went down, we enjoyed some snacks and drinks at a quaint restaurant, then Theodore drive us all the way back to our hotel, showing us some more of the sights of Athens along the way! Needless to say, We had a great time, and learned a lot! Thank you to Theodore! Don't hesitate to book a tour with him! He is awesome!

A customized trip with Phevos

Great tour by Phevos. We truly enjoyed the city walk, Phevos did a great job keeping the group well informed and challenged with greek mythology fun facts. Great tips also about the city, Acropolis as we finished our tour at the Acropolis entrance. Recommend to anyone interested on a very good Athens city walk with a greek mythology spin!
