Greece is the cradle of Western civilization’s arts, science, philosophy and architecture. Its mountains, plains, impossibly blue seas and ancient sites of epic history are all justifiably world-famous. More than just its glorious past, when you fly to Greece with Alitalia in our extra-comfort seats, you’ll find a modern and vibrant country waiting for you.
Walk the streets of Athens in the footsteps of Plato, Socrates and Pericles. Visit the Parthenon and dream of the events its stones have witnessed through the millennia. Visit the Agora, once the marketplace of the ancient city that became the birthplace of democracy. Athens’ museums contain ancient art that has left an indelible impression on artists to this day. Your flight to Greece will also allow you to discover the ancient city of Thessaloniki, with its World Heritage Site plus an electrically charged contemporary culture that is both enticing and energizing. Thessaloniki is close to some of the best beaches in Greece and it’s an ideal base from which you can explore the fabulous Greek mountaintop monasteries.
Alitalia’s flight deals to Greece are great value. Explore Athens and Thessaloniki on foot – it’s easier than by car – and do dress modestly when visiting churches and monasteries.
