Between the hills and the ancient ruins, at the heart of the eastern Mediterranean, Athens unites history and modernity. Let AirNode assist you in choosing the right aircraft to fly private to this ancient Greek city and we will make the arrangements for your perfect stay in this fascinating city.
The history of the city starts at the Acropolis, on top of the hill, which is classed as a world heritage site by UNESCO and houses sacred antique artifacts from the birth of western civilization and democracy. After coming back down the hill, head to Plaka or to the Kolonaki area. Wander through Kolonaki’s warm streets and explore local art galleries and the boutiques of Greek designers. This is a shoppers’ paradise, featuring upscale stores, as well as jewellers and craft shops. Find a moment to relax in Athens’ National Garden. Stroll between the shadowed pathways of the park and take in the beautiful plants and shaded arbours, a dreamy spot for a quick escape. If you would rather catch some sun on a deck chair by the shore, the sandy beaches of the Athens Riviera are ideal. Then head to Paleo Phaliro; the Yacht Club has some great restaurants and boutiques. Culture is the heart of Athens, particularly at Gazi. This former industrial site now offers a selection of exhibitions and avant-garde restaurants, some with views over the city’s rooftops and hills. Don’t miss the Michelin starred restaurants, as the Hellenic city has some of the best, offering Mediterranean or world cuisine to cater to all tastes.
