Greece actually has 16 international airports. However for scheduled flights Athens, Crete, Rhodes and Thassaloniki are the only ones who take those. The vast majority of flights Athens handles is crucial as it is seen as the gateway to the rest of the mainland and the islands.
Once you have got off your flight, Athens has a lot of must visits like the famous Acropolis, cafes to wile away the time or use your time for shopping. This normally means a trip to the flea market on a Sunday which covers the area of Plateia Monastirakiou and across to Ermou.
Even if you only plan to stay a few days and will then be off on another flight Athens flea market is a must. It covers pretty much anything from trash to treasure, wigs, tyres, sweets, and binoculars. You could pick up a bargain.
