8 of the Best Day Trips from Athens

This year is likely to be one of the best times to visit the historical city of Athens, with great bargains on flights, hotels and transportation and if you’re lucky, a few less crowds at the many local sights. Just take a few precautions like carrying some extra cash and double-checking schedules and opening hours. While there’s plenty to keep you occupied in the center, with the money you’ll save you can afford to enjoy some day trips out of the city and explore the many sights a little further afield.

Traveling to the Greek Islands: High Season vs. Off-Season

Greece’s Hidden Beaches

There’s nothing so dispiriting than getting all psyched up for an idyllic beach holiday only to find the place a smorgasbord of domestic debris. From bottle tops to fizzy drink cans and take-away junk food peppering the soft sands, it can be a depressing sight and ruin a much needed holiday. Hopefully these beautiful and relaxing beaches in the Greek islands should restore sun seekers’ faith in discovering sunbathing havens, unscathed by Benidorm style developments. With unpredictable weather in the UK always threatening rain clouds, these are also destinations not too far away or taxing on the pocket.

Greek Island Getaways

Lesvos

The islands are an integral part of any visit to Greece. Some travelers even devote their entire Greek vacation to exploring them. But with more than 150 inhabited islands to choose from, as well as a few uninhabited ones, deciding where to go can be a bit bewildering.

Some islands are known for their comely beaches, some for their sunsets, some for their fascinating history, some for their drunken hedonism. It is fairly easy to hop back and forth between them via regular ferry services, but where to go? Where to begin?

Athens: Now is the time to visit!

Temple of Poseidon

There is a certain type of traveler—we don’t have a name for them—who have a benevolent streak that co-exists quite happily with a hunger for travel and love for a bargain. This strange mix finds its expression when the opportunity arises to visit a place where some sort of calamity has struck, and they see the chance to do some good, while at the same time enjoying low prices, sparse crowds and grateful locals.

There is no better current example of a place matching this description than Athens.

[PHOTOS] Things to Do in Paros, Greece

Paros - Hinterland - Lefkes

You can find Greek islands with more frenetic nightlife, more secluded getaways, resorts where the needle on the chi-chi-meter reaches further into the red. But few are as well-connected as Paros while offering such a great value for money and enough variety–beaches, churches, bars, classical ruins, restaurants–to satisfy everyone. Throw in plucky little neighbor Antiparos and you have two islands for the price of one. And who doesn’t like getting something for free?
