Plan Your Athens Holiday

When you travel to Athens you take a trip to a past world that lives on through monuments that have stood the test of time, such as the Parthenon, the Temple of Zeus, and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. The colossal archaeological remains allow us to imagine the splendour and intellectual charms of an ancient civilisation.

Additionally, take advantage of Etihad Airways’ flight deals to Athens to discover Panas’ Cave in the heart of the Mont Parnes, to stroll through the National Garden of Athens, and to check out the chic boutiques of Kolonaki.
