You’ve finally made it! You’ve just arrived at Eleftherios Venzelos International Airport. This must be exciting! After you’ve gone through all the necessary security procedures and collected your luggage, you can’t wait to get out into the fresh air and start experiencing all you’ve ever read about or heard about this amazing country.
If you haven’t arranged a pick-up through your hotel, don’t worry! There are busses, cabs and the Metro (the subway) to take and all means are very convenient.
The airport terminal is about 40kilometers away from the city centre, in the area of Spata. It would take you around 45 minutes to get downtown. Before you leave the building, grab any maps and information leaflets from the Info desk at Arrivals. Of course you will find some at your hotel, but you can never have enough.
You’re on your way to the hotel now – sit back and enjoy the view.
You just can’t believe what an amazing visit this will be – the holiday of a lifetime!
Welcome to Greece my dear reader!
