Served by the NYC subway and Long Island Railroad, John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is conveniently accessible by rapid transit. After your Athens-bound flight takes off from JFK, you'll spend just over 12 hours in the sky. When you arrive in the capital of Greece, you'll be amazed at the number of ancient Doric columns and amphitheaters that still stand. Head to the Acropolis and enjoy aerial views of Athens. As you tour the Parthenon, you'll discover a prominent temple that was dedicated to the goddess Athena.
Use Motorway 1 to navigate the western part of Athens and merge onto exits leading to the city center. You can also ride the Athens Metro and Athens–Piraeus Electric Railways to reach top attractions like the National Archaeological Museum and Benaki Museum. After checking out the ancient Panathenaic Stadium, explore the modern sports culture of Athens by watching a football game at the Olympic Stadium.
After landing at Athens International Airport (ATH), pick up a rental car and merge on Motorway 6 to reach the capital of Greece. The Mediterranean climate in Athens brings mild temperatures in the winter and warm days in the summer. When it gets hot in this city, you'll be thankful for the cool breeze that comes from the Mediterranean Sea. Regardless of the time of the year, you can comfortably enjoy authentic Souvlaki platters and Baklava dessert at outdoor restaurants.
