Flights to Greece: admire ancient history at its best from £366

Most travellers choose to fly to Greece. Athens is accessible by direct flights from London, taking a little over 3 hours and 35 minutes. As well as Athens, a number of airlines offer flights to Thessaloniki or other island airports such as Corfu, Santorini, Mykonos or Rhodes. Greece's location is very particular due to its largely isolated geography. During high seasons, the majority of travel companies offer direct charter flights to the coastal resorts and the more touristic islands, excluding flights to the Greek capital.

Equally, it is more pleasant to visit the Greek capital when the heat is less intense in September or October. Rain hits Athens in the winter, typically between November and January.

Nevertheless, the best time to visit Greece is during the spring when 30C temperature is pleasant and the sun is shining but the crowds of tourists have not yet arrived.
