Flight Distance and Flying Time to Athens

Athens

More than ever, this is the time to explore Athens, Greece. After a massive re-vamping of the city in 2004 when they hosted the Olympic Games, Athens is welcoming visitors with a whole new sheen to the ancient city.

The unforgettable experience of walking to the Acropolis and going through this passage in time always draws thousands of tourists. A true landmark that evokes an extraordinary atmosphere, the pull into the past as you stand among the ruins is impossible to resist.

The charm of Greece comes alive in this city of distinguished monuments, cheerful tavernas, shops filled with souvenirs and markets to spend hours browsing through.

Old and worn architecture shares the city with the modern lines of today. Visiting the city on foot is the best and easiest way to see Athens . Get up close to touch a statue, smell the tantalizing scents of spanakopita, or sit down for a glass of Ouzo.

The birthplace of democracy, the Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena, would be proud of her namesake. In addition to this, the world of architecture, art and philosophy greatly benefited from the works and thoughts of the ancient Greek.

Look no further than Plato and Socrates to know the affect Greece has had on the world. Though the Middle Ages proved to be Greece 's greatest period, Athens , thereafter, became little more than a small town with few residents. But in the early 1800s, an independent Greece named Athens is Capital.
