DURING THE PAST few years in particular, Athens’ infrastructural developments have evolved significantly, owing both to regional developments as well as strategic efforts to promote the city as an idea destination for business tourism.
One important part of the reason Athens has risen up as one of Southern Europe’s most exciting cities is its excellent location, only a few hours away from most of the main European capitals. Athens is perfectly situated at the crossroads between East and West and has been growing in popularity as a regional hub.
“Since it opened in 2001, the Athens International Airport has become one of the fastest-growing airports globally, enriching its network with new carriers and destinations at regular intervals,” adds Galinos. “At the same time we have an expanding state-of-the-art transport network that includes Metro, bus, tram, train, Trolleybus and a modern highway; all of which are at a very low cost.”
There are many quick and efficient forms of transport when you need to make your way around the city in a hurry, and as well as the aforementioned modes of transport, you can also easily catch one of the brightly coloured taxis that are a reasonably priced way to navigate the city.
