To ensure you get the very best out of your trip to Athens, we have put together a helpful travel guide with details on the best places to eat, stay, and visit.
The many public transport options make travelling in and around Athens a breeze. First, for less than a couple of euros, you can get on one of five tram lines that run from the city centre to neighbouring towns and along the coast. You could also take the bus, but keep in mind it’s a little slower than the tram. Several underground train links are available as well; however, it sometimes does get hot and crowded. Finally, if all else fails, the abundance of taxis rounds out the transportation options.
Athens is a popular destination between May and October when the average temperature rarely falls lower than 20°C (68°F), the hottest months being July and August when temperatures average almost 30°C (86°F). You’ll find that Athens can be pleasant to visit at any time of the year, but in winter, temperatures average about 10°C (50°F) and chances of rainfall increases.
