Things to Do in Athens

  • Explore Athens’ ancient sites. Visit Agora, the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Temple of Zeus, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and the Panathenaic Stadium – location of the first Olympic Games in 1896.
  • Pay a visit to the Sea Turtle Rescue Centre in Glyfada. Perfect for animal lovers and families, this rescue centre aims to rehabilitate injured sea turtles.
  • Discover the city’s cooler side. Trendy cafes, artsy neighbourhoods and a vibrant nightlife, Athens may be ancient but it’s also incredibly modern. 
  • Drop by the Monastiraki Flea Market. The perfect place for picking up some jewellery and souvenirs, this market is open every day.
 

Best Time to Visit

Why We Love It

Becci “Athens is a great city for anyone into history, or cats – there’s a lot of cats around. I loved the markets, they’re great for shopping for local food (cheese, bread, olives and olive oil – make sure you bring home bottle!)”

Date:26th June 2019Hotel/Flight Booking:FUERTEVENTURA-FUERTEVENTURA Comment:This is the fourth holiday we've booked with GoHop and they have been excellent throughout. On the one occasion we weren't happy with our accommodation goHop were able to process a refund from the hotel as we found accommodation elsewhere. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Date:22nd June 2019Flight Booking:MANCHESTER Comment:Annmarie was very helpful. She provided great customer service, information about my trip and options available to me. A pleasure to deal with, which is why Go Hop is my first choice for travel arrangements every time.
Date:21st June 2019Flight Booking:INVERNESS Comment:I was looking at accommodation in Inverness on a website that advertises hotel accommodation, and there were only two rooms left on the site for my room of interest, in spite of the fact that I was looking at a booking almost eleven months away. I booked the room and then I had to book flights to Inverness. I found flights on gohop.ie that I could use for a weekend away, that would allow me to comfortably arrive at the hotel before the end of the check in period. I was comfortable using gohop.ie to book the flights because I used the service to book flights in the past and they never let me down.
