Greece’s capital city is one of the most popular destinations in the world and it’s no wonder. The city was named after Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom, and the famous Parthenon was her temple. Today, Athens flights are packed with travelers flocking to Athena’s namesake to tour the mythical mysterious city.
Athens is probably most famous for hosting the first ever Olympics in 1896. In 2004, millions of travelers booked flights to Athens and witnessed history repeat itself when Athens hosted the Summer Olympics. Thanks to the boost in tourism that accompanied the Olympics, Athens built new roads and upgraded its transportation alternatives, making it easier for Athens visitors to get around the city. Spend a day touring the Acropolis, the Parthenon and the Temple of Olympian Zeus before settling in with the locals. Enjoy authentic Greek food in sidewalk cafes and take in a little bit of Greece at its best before boarding your Athens flight back home.
