travelling to and from the airport


Athens a fast guide

Sights are clustered in an easy 8 sq km rectangle, running from Syntagma [NE] to Temple of Olympion Zeus[SE] to the south corner of Acropolis hill [SW] to Thision metro/Keramikos cemetary [NW]. Syntagma Square is where you get to see guards in fluffy bobble shoes outside parliament [picture above right] or catch the metro or airport bus. The Temple of Olympion Zeus / Olympeion may not be impressive but heralds the start of the excellent new pedestrian walkway that will take you to the Acropolis. From there you have three good alternative routes. either a] continue on to tranquil Keramikos cemetary and its magnificent funerary monuments, b] go round the corner to see the little whitewashed houses of Anafiotika or c] dive down into the ancient market, the Temple of Hephaestus or varied Roman remains

If you have a litle time on your hand enjoy the views from Lykavittos Hill, a little north-east of Syntagma - by cable car.
