Travel to Athens
With the airport located at a distance of 35 kms from the centre of the city, it is quite easy for travellers to figure out how to go to Athens conveniently. Tourists can hop on a flight to Athens International Airport, and reach their destination while covering the distance of around 5009 kms. A hub for all the major airlines, including Lufthansa, Qatar Airways, British Airways, Turkish Airlines, one can easily cover the India to Athens distance by air conveniently in around 10 hours. Hence, opting for a flight from India to Athens is the best and most convenient way, especially, for those who want to explore Greece and its centuries-old capital.
Let’s take a look at the below detailed guide in regard to how to reach Athens from India via various means of transport.
There are numerous India to Athens flights that are operating frequently from the major cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and more. The fastest Mumbai to Athens flight is flown by Turkish Airlines, taking the duration of 10 hours. However, most Mumbai to Athens or Delhi to Athens flights make a stopover at various European cities like Istanbul, Doha, Abu Dhabi or Dubai, or Zurich or Budapest in Europe. Depending on the number of stops, a flight can take up to 32 hours to reach Athens.
Though, it is not possible to visit Athens from India via rail, traveling to Athens via train from other European countries is a very common occurrence. Rail Europe offers high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and regional trains from capital cities like Istanbul of Turkey, Belgrade of Serbia, Budapest of Hungary, Sofia of Bulgaria, Sarajevo of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Vienna of Austria, Zurich of Switzerland and Munich of Germany. Many people opt for the trans-Europe luxurious train journey for a spectacular view from the Swiss Alps to the sunny Mediterranean. Within the city, Athens Railway Station or Larissa Station is the main railway hub that connects the long distance, suburban and metro lines.
Although India and Greece are connected by a small strip of land, it is impossible in reality to make the journey from Delhi to Athens or from any other city. The roadway takes one from India to Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and then to Greece while crossing the European border. The 5000 km distance is neither politically or geographically easy to conquer, nor is it safe or convenient. However, if you have been traveling throughout Europe, then there are highways connecting other countries to the city. The journey to Athens by bus is long and needs getting on and off many times to change vehicle, but it is great for a road trip. Athens map has two bus terminals – A and B, located at Kifissou Street and Liossion Street, from where buses ferry across Greece. The Athens Central Bus Station has the KTEL Attica buses that cover the suburbs.

Trip to MaldivesAwesome trip to Maldives!! KesiaTravels did a fantastic job planning our trip to Greece! I was recommended to Travel triangle by a friend who had plan a trip several years back. Saloni specializes in Maldives and has suggested us a great package. I am generally a "Traveller", however, in a country like Maldives, and with limited days, Saloni really made all the difference in developing a well thought out plan. She maximized all our time. Every detail was arranged for us with the best of drivers, tour guides, and hotels. I really trust Saloni and Kesia Travels and would certainly seek her advise again for my next trip. one word to say it's a " Paradise and heaven on Earth".. we really enjoyed our honeymoon on the Dreamland "Fushifaru" Maldives
Trip to GreeceOur trip started from Rome to Florence and Venice. The trip could have been much better and our one day to Tuscan village was ruined because of late info from agent. There were so many things which could have been included like museums, art gallery and so on. The place is worth the visit but nobody informed us about commute system in Venice and all the points were very far from hotel .The services should be improved definitely if we are spending so much money and special arrangements should be done for honeymoon. Marina da Pisa Beach day out which we did by our own because our Tuscany lunch and day out was cancelled due to agent late info.
Trip to GreeceThis holiday was planned in a very short span of time. Special thanks to Rohit and Prashant in helping us out get the best deals throughout the trip. They were always available on call and whatsapp even during the entire duration of the trip. I am sure even if I had self planned the trip it couldn’t have been better than this. Greece is a beautiful country and there are plenty things to explore. We had a mix of adventure, history and romantic destinations on our itinerary. In all it was a good trip. Athens to Mykonos cruise trip.
Trip to GreeceThe entire trip was very well organized. Garima helped us throughout the process - customizing our itinerary, suggesting places to visit, booking tickets as per our request, and providing assistance in the Visa process. She even helped us with our queries when we were in Greece. The hotels booked for us were simply superb. The hotel staff at Athens was not too friendly though. The sightseeing tours that were booked for us were very nice and hassle free. We faced no issues with pick up/drop, except for the pickup at Santorini but that too was because our ferry reached late, and it was handled well by the Destination Services staff. The itinerary had a perfect balance of activities and leisure time. We enjoyed the trip a lot. Kuods to Garima and Eji Travel Solutions for organizing such a nice and memorable trip for us! Thank you!!
