The airport is located just outside the village of Kamari on the island of Santorini, and it began its operations in 1972.

The journey can take up to 30 minutes and buses run only five times a day. Bus timings are frequently adjusted to suit flight departures, and you will have to make advance enquiries to know the exact times. Alternatively, you can hire taxis and shared private-transfers, which are usually expensive.

Spend time at the boutiques, galleries and cafes at Kolonaki, just below the Lycabettus hill. Spend time at the Syntagma square, which also doubles as a shopping destination. Groove to the latest EDM when the night falls, at one of the many nightclubs in Psyri, an Athens neighborhood known for its live music taverns, bars, and clubs.
