EME Outlook - - Athens -

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.
