Attractions & Activities
Things to do in Athens, Greece
A private flight to Athens puts you in the center of some of the world’s best ancient sites and historical landmarks. As one of the world’s oldest cities, you’ll find influences from a variety of cultures that have ruled over the city throughout the centuries.
Although the first pre-historic settlements arrived in 3,000 BC surrounding the hill of Acropolis, the first mention of Athens in recorded history doesn’t appear until around 1,400 BC, by which time it had already become a major cultural center of the Mycenaean civilization. Thanks to it’s fortified hilltop location featuring the Acropolis, it became a major trade center in the ancient Greek world by 900 BC.
Through years of conflict with the Persian empire, Athens established itself as the world’s first democratic city-state, leading to a Golden Age of Athenian Democracy following the Greco-Persian War. It was during this time it became the world’s leader in philosophy, drama, historical writings, artistry, and politics.
As Athenian influence began to spread throughout the Greek states, the militaristic city-state of Sparta, an Athenian ally during its wars with Persia, took issue with their goals, resulting in the nearly 30 year Peloponnesian War where Athens’ imperial ambitions were squashed in defeat. All of Greece was conquered by Macedonia in 338 BC, who controlled Athens until 197 BC when Rome arrived; it was passed from Roman to Byzantine control when the Roman Empire split in Late Antiquity.
As result, the Ottoman, Byzantine and Roman civilizations mark the city’s design everywhere you look, containing some of the world’s most treasured sites and landmarks for you to explore after your private flight arrives.
Athens revived the the modern Olympic Games when it hosted the 1896 Summer Olympics, highlighted by the Panathenaic Stadium known as Kallimarmaro, the world’s only all-marble stadium. It was constructed on the site of an ancient racecourse dating back to 330 BC, and also served as a venue in the 2004 Summer Olympics when it hosted the event again.
Today, Athens is a cosmopolitan metropolis and the economic, financial, industrial, maritime, political and cultural center of Greece, and home to nearly 4 million Athenians. At first impression, modern Athens appears to be entirely composed of unappealing, concrete buildings which lack character and could use a layer of fresh paint — venturing through the maze of greyscale walls will uncover centuries old history and architecture, as well as hidden gems, including narrow, winding paths uncovering neoclassical buildings, traditional cafes, trendy shops, leading all the way to incredible views of the Acropolis.
