Most visitors to Athens come in search of the city's ancient, mystical past. The Acropolis, a World Heritage Site, is top of everyone's list, and it's here that you'll find the Parthenon, the Erectheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike. Other city center ancient sites include the Ancient Agora, the Kerameikos and the Dipylon Gate, as well as the ruins of the Ancient Temple of Zeus. The National Archaeological Museum is a good place to assimilate much of Athens' history.
There's more to Athens than ancient history, however. Around the foot of the Acropolis, in the Plaka district, you can view beautiful neo-classical buildings and indulge in some of the best craft shops. Head north from the city center to the Metaxourgeio district to enjoy some of the city's best art galleries.

Tip. Flight boards window and middle economy first then aisle. Expect little to no overhead space.
Smooth and got in early. Yesss
I liked getting consistent emails about gate updates, all the way to when boarding started
For 45 euros for a checked bag you would expect not a waiting time of almost half an hour to pick up your luggage.
Spacing up seat was odd. The dividers created 3 slots for personal items yet there were 4 seats.... Not helpful
Given the time of the flight it would’ve been nice to have been given something a bit more substantial to eat than cookies
It's an ok flight -- just average
Food was not to my liking. WiFi didn’t connect with internet
Seats were horrible. I had less than no room. Did not fit my 6 foot-two frame.Everything else was OK.
One of the most entertaining flights I have ever taken... great crew
