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.

Colors & Myths of Athens: Family Friendly Tour

We loved Vicky! We didn't bring kids for her tour and we all loved it (4, 30yr olds).
She is full of energy and info. Loved her! Would do another tour with her again!

Fresh Seafood Home Dinner with Panoramic View

I booked this experience as a surprise for my partner’s birthday. And it was an amazing surprise for both of us! The hosts were charming and welcoming, they made us feel like we were visiting old friends. Michail is an outstanding chef. We were served some lovely traditional starters, delicious fresh seafood, beautifully flavoursome pork and a homemade cake to die for. We had a lovely evening and our only regret was that we didn’t book more than just one night.
I thoroughly recommend Michail as a personal chef if you really want to experience an unforgettable evening filled with authentic Greek food and hospitality.
