Best things to do and see in Greece

There are various flights to Greece from the United States. Most of the nonstop options arrive at Greece’s main airport, Athens International Airport (ATH). Most of these flights are offered only during the high season. However, the trip can take approximately 9h and 20min from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York, 10h and 20min from Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), and at least 13h and 40min departing from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The nonstop option that flies year-round takes off from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in New Jersey and is about 9h and 10min long. Other destinations in Greece are major airports like the Heraklion Airport N. Kazantzakis (HER) in Crete and Thessaloniki Airport Makedonia (SKG). The Greece flights to these airports have at least one layover in between and can take over 10h from the east coast, like John F. Kennedy International Airport, and at least 13h out of the west coast, from Los Angeles International Airport.

Nonstop flights to Greece from the United States land in Athens International Airport. However, most of these direct routes are seasonal and don’t run during the winter months. The American Airlines seasonal flights are out of John F. Kennedy International Airport, Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), and Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Delta Airlines operates seasonal nonstop flights from John F. Kennedy International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). As for United Airlines, the seasonal direct flights are out of Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Washington D.C. and Newark Liberty International Airport. Year-round, you can find cheap nonstop flights only from Newark Liberty International Airport, operated by Emirates Airlines. There currently aren’t any direct flights to other major airports in Greece like the Heraklion Airport N. Kazantzakis and Thessaloniki Airport Makedonia. Nonetheless, airlines like Swiss Airlines and Lufthansa offer routes with just one layover, generally in Europe.

If you’re traveling around the mainland of Greece, a great way of getting around is by bus. There is an efficient bus system that goes between the main cities. However, one of Greece’s most famous things to see are the islands. The best way to get to the islands from either Athens or Thessaloniki are either by plane or ferry. For instance, you can take either a ferry or a cheap flight to the iconic island of Santorini from either of the major Greek cities on the mainland. It’s also possible to rent a car while you’re in Greece if you plan on visiting more remote areas, like the UNESCO-listed monastery of Meteora or the archeological site of Olympia. It’s also possible to rent a vehicle on some of the larger islands like Crete or Naxos. This is a great way to explore the islands and see the most secluded beaches and coves like Elafonisi Beach or the Cedar Forest of Alyko.

US citizens will need a valid passport to be allowed to fly to and enter Greece. It’s recommended that the passport is valid for at least six months after the planned departure date from Greece, as well as having a couple of free pages for entry stamps. As for the visa requirements, US citizens do not need to obtain a tourist visa before they arrive in Greece, as long as they don’t intend on staying for longer than 90 days.
