Best Things To Do on Weekends
If your holiday in Greece includes a stop in Athens, there is a bevy of activities to fill your schedule. Before you book cheap flights to Athens, you may want to have an idea of what you want to see and accomplish in the short time. And be sure to pack comfortable shoes before heading out on flights to Athens if you want to see the iconic Acropolis and surrounding attractions. After you arrive at Athens International Airport (ATH), head straight to the Acropolis. You can see the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, and the Temple of Hephaestus, the Erechtheion, and other ancient landmarks on your first day in Athens. Grab a bite to eat, grab a few mementos, and stroll through the Flea Market at the nearby Plaka. Nearly everyone searching for cheap flights to Athens can appreciate the ancient history surrounding the city on their first day. But not everyone knows of the hidden gems near the major landmarks. Get up early on day two and climb to the top of Philopappos Hill for panoramic views of the Acropolis and surrounding Athens. Pack a light breakfast and watch as the sun rises over the mountains, slowly awakening the city. After breakfast, head down the hill to the Prison of Socrates. If you research the prison when searching return flights to Athens, you may discover a bit of debate as to whether Socrates was actually held captive at this particular prison. No matter what side of the debate you find yourself, this historical landmark is worth a visit. Read Plato’s apology on the bench outside the prison then walk a little farther on the path toward leros Naos Agios Dimitrios Loubardiaris. This small Byzantine church may look like it’s about to crumble to the average passer-by. But the inside is a treasure trove of rich Grecian history waiting to be admired. The single sloped arch roofed Basilica was built in the 9th century when Greece was under Ottoman occupation. When the Turkish governor realised the Greeks were holding celebrations inside the church, he ordered his troops to fire upon it using the cannon known as Loumbarda. But just before the cannon fired on the church full of people, a large bolt of lighting came from the heavens, destroying the cannon and gunpowder magazine. The church still remains.
