Head to Los Angeles International (LAX) on one of the convenient LAX FlyAway buses, or if you’d rather drive yourself, park at the Central Terminal Area. Typical flight times from LAX to Athens International Airport (ATH) are approximately 14 1/2 hours.
Once you land at ATH you can take the Metro, Suburban Rail, OSY Bus Service or KTEL Express Regional Bus to get into Athens.
Immerse yourself in Athenian life, spending the day meandering through Anafiotika, a historical neighborhood on Acropolis Hill. Take in the classical architecture and experience the relaxed Greek lifestyle.
No trip to Athens would be complete without a stop at the Acropolis, which houses the Temple of Athena and the Parthenon. For enviable souvenirs, stop by the Byzantio, a marketplace in which you can find replicas of ancient Greek jewelry and sculptures.
Make visiting the key sites in Athens easy by selecting a hotel situated in Marianni, Thission or Monastiraki. All of these areas border the Acropolis and offer easy access to public transit. Consider the climate when packing for your trip to Athens.
If you are traveling November to March, be prepared for cold and rainy weather (50s to 60s). If your trip is scheduled for April to October, expect warm to hot weather (70s to 80s).
