What to know before you fly to Athens?

If you’re planning on flying to Athens, there are a few things to keep in mind. The weather features distinct seasons that range from hot, dry summers to cold wet winters. Spring, early summer and autumn are generally considered the best times to travel to Athens, with the added bonus of avoiding the summer crowds.
