Destination Profile

As a result of the preparation of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, Athens has inherited an extensive and modern infrastructure. Examples are a new airport, ring roads, underground & overground tram/train networks and generally the city had an extensive clean up and face lift.

The Acropolis (with Parthenon as its main attraction) situated in the centre of Athens, is one of the many historical sites that brings visitors to the city. However, Athens is also a modern and vibrant city, and it offers a variety of night life entertainment to its visitors.

Climate

Athens has a pleasant and sunny climate. Between March and May the weather is pleasant and mild, rising between June and August, and resulting in a very hot August. September can sometimes be as hot as the summer months but with occasional light rain. Most rain in the city falls between November and February, when Athens can be cold, windy and dull. The winter can offer sunny days though and any rain is often followed by sunshine.
