Athens travel tips

As a major tourist city and the cradle of Western civilization, Athens has a comprehensive public transport system that offers a choice of means of travel. Stay in central Athens neighborhoods like Plaka for easy access to the city’s affordable and reliable Metro train service. You simply pay a flat fee of a couple of dollars for a ticket that is valid on any train for 90 minutes. Or you could stay in a more outlying suburb, like Kifissia, and use the overground train service, covered by the same ticket. You’ll be able to easily find cheap hotels in Athens in these suburbs.

Where to stay in Athens

Athens is at once a very popular tourist and vacation attraction and a bustling modern commercial city. The commercial hub of the city is in the Monastiraki and Psirri district, which are easy to get to and from using public transport. They’re well served by buses, trolley-buses and the Metro trains. So, if you’re on business and looking to book hotels in Athens around here, you can stay at the Modern Studio at Monastiraki Square or the Ermou Monastiraki View Lycabettus. If you’re on a leisure trip to the tourist areas, then you’ll be wanting to stay in the Acropolis and Koukaki districts. Here we can recommend you stay in hotels like the Acropolis Select or at Great Living Koukaki. For easy access to nightlife and restaurants you can stay in Plaka – the Hidesign Apartments are very close by.

Learn about attractions and sights in Athens

Some of the most popular attractions in Athens include the famous Acropolis and Parthenon. There’s also the Acropolis Museum with its priceless collection of ancient Greek art. For these, you can stay in the Acropolis / Koukaki neighborhood, and simply take a public transport bus or trolley bus to get there. This transport system runs from very early in the morning until midnight, and you won’t find yourself having to wait long for one to come by. Next to the Plaka neighborhood is the district of Anafiotika, both on the lower slopes of the Acropolis hill and are very handily placed for you to catch either the Metro or one of the public transport busses. You can take one of these to the Kolonaki Quarter too, where you’ll find even more cultural history and ancient artifacts. Bear these neighborhoods in mind when you’re looking for hotels in Athens.

Great neighborhoods in Athens for a large selection of bars and restaurants are Plaka and Anafiotika. You can take a Metro train and be there in no time, and the suburbs are also very well serviced by the Athens trolley bus system. Plaka is known for its charming narrow streets and outdoor cafes, and when you’re in Anafiotika the place to head for is Restaurant Staircase. For Greek street food and drink, take a bus to the flea market in Monastiraki. Or stay in one of the nearby Athens Hotels, like Central Athens Hotel in Plaka.

Athens is overflowing with festivities throughout the year. For an all-round experience of Greek culture, both ancient and modern, plan your visit around the Athens Epidaurus Festival, held from June to August each year. The various events take place in venues all around the city center, such as the Lycabettus Theater and the Odeon of Herodotus Atticus. For jazz music fans there’s the Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival at the end of May, hosted in several venues in the Plaka and Central Athens district. For something a bit more different, there’s the Athens International Comics Festival, also known as the Babel Festival, which is held at SKC Happy Gallery in February. Once again, reaching any of these from your Athens hotel can be by bus, trolley bus or train.
