What Athens (ATH) has to offer

Flights to Athens, where history beckons

Are you are ready to explore the first center of European culture and its rich heritage? Take a Lufthansa flight to Athens, birthplace of democracy and philosophy. The most famous sight of Athens is the Sacred Rock of the Athenian Acropolis with the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike, commonly known as just The Acropolis.

Athens: it’s all Greek to you

To get more information about the most famous Greek temple in the world, visit the Acropolis Museum. Here you will find its history recounted and illustrated by thousands of artefacts from the era of its construction, often called the Golden Era of Athens. To find out how this beautiful temple fits into Greek culture and history, visit the world-renowned Archaeological Museum of Athens, which houses the finest Greek antiquities. Some say that Athens is just one big open-air museum, so instead of standing inside some buildings you can get your education by walking the archaeological path from the 19th century. You will walk to the Two Hills, which were dedicated to the Nymphs and the Muses, respectively. You will see the Ancient Agora, once the center of public life in classical Athens. The Theatre of Dionysus, where the works of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides were staged, is also on the way. The end of the archaeological path marks, quite fittingly, the Kerameikos, which used to be the ancient Athenians sacred cemetery.

Sun and the city: enjoy Athens

Athens is a modern day city, which can be easily forgotten when you explore the splendor of its past. Have a walk in the beautiful neighborhood of Plaka, which is worth an exploration. The famous Syntagma square is a central location that allows you to walk to all the important monuments or catch one of the three metros to travel anywhere in the city or the surrounding suburbs. Allow yourself a stroll in Monastiraki, the oldest part of the town with a traditional flea market. Go to the beautiful beaches for a relaxing day of swimming, snorkeling or just tanning in the Mediterranean sun. Here on the “Athenian Riviera”, the coastline of Athens, you can also have a night out dancing in the clubs that are scattered along the beaches. Some great Greek food and the famous wine will help you to keep up the energy and give your taste buds a great experience. Book one of the comfortable Lufthansa flights to Athens and enjoy Greece!
