Time to book your autumn vacation to Greece and now you Aegean helps you split your time between Athens and one of Greece’s two great year-round destination islands: Crete and Rhodes.

Aegean Airlines is offering 10,000 seats at 50 euro, including all taxes. But you better hurry, these fantastic fares won’t last long and when they are gone, they are gone.

By the way, Aegean is now a full Star Alliance member, so checkout United Airlines, Lufthansa, Air Canada and US Airways flights from North America to Greece. You can book yourself all the way through via these partner airlines, and check your luggage all the way, too. Use this clever travel tip to best plan your time by landing in Athens and connecting to one of these Aegean flights to Rhodes or Crete, spend a few days on the island and return to Athens for the end of your trip. This avoids a one night stay in Athens at the end of your trip and saves you the travel time of an extra back and forth between downtown and the airport.

Fall is a great time to visit Greece: the crowds are gone, the days are still warm but not roasting and the waters throughout Greece are stilling invitingly warm.

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
