Book flights from Bangkok to Athens with Qatar Airways
Arriving in Athens
The cradle of modern civilisation, the birthplace of democracy – Athens has to be one of the most influential and iconic destinations in the world. Book a flight to Athens with Qatar Airways and you’ll quickly discover why this extraordinary city is so important not just to the history of Europe, but to its future as well.
Filled with incredible historical sites, Athens is also a modern, working city that is home to nearly four million people.
But it’s the history that most visitors come to experience, and immersing yourself in the relics of the past is a great way to understand so much more about our own modern civilisation, as well as Greece’s incredible past.
Athens packs in the attractions, and at the top of most visitors’ lists has to be the Acropolis, a World Heritage site and standing proud above the city itself. For the best overall view of Athens, especially at sunset, head to Lykavittos Hill.
It’s a hot, dusty climb, but on a clear day you can see beyond the port of Piraeus and out to the islands of Aegina and the Peloponnese.
Back in the city, the Ancient Agora is home to some of the best-preserved temples and monuments from the Bronze Age, and the magnificent Temple of Zeus with its towering columns.
Modern Athens has plenty to offer as well, with dozens of museums and galleries to explore. The best way to see Athens is to take an open-top tour of the city by bus.
Flights to Athens with Qatar Airways land at Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Athens please check the visa and passport requirements.

Greece’s capital has more history under its belt than just about any other city. The Acropolis is world-famous and it’s incredible to think that the likes of Plato and Socrates once walked these very streets. The modern city has all the conveniences you would expect, from shopping precincts to top restaurants, and fine museums like the National Art Gallery are always worth a visit.
