Global Affairs Canada has recently elevated it’s advisory for Haiti to avoid all travel due to the reigning civil unrest throughout the country.   This is the highest level of the Canadian government’s Travel Advice and Advisories.

Considering the current level of insecurity, we strongly recommend that you respect this advisory.

Information regarding vacation packages
Given the uncertain accessibility of the road leading to the Royal Decameron Indigo Beach, Transat cannot guarantee safe transfers and has therefore stopped the sale of vacation packages, until the end of April 2019.

Information regarding flights
Until the government has reduced its alert level, all customers who have booked a flight to Haiti for the months of February, March and April 2019 are entitled to modify their reservation without penalty. Customers are invited to contact their travel agency or Air Transat’s Contact Center to adjust their file accordingly.

For the time being, Air Transat’s flight operations continue as planned.  However, the situation may change at any moment and without notice. 

 

Athens Travel Guide

  • Europe’s oldest city

    A flight to Europe’s oldest city means communing with a civilization more than 3,400 years old while simultaneously revelling in the vibrant process of its renewal. The things to do and see in Athens take visitors on a time-warped journey through history.

Discover Athens

 
  • Sights

    Keeping watch over Athens is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world and a universal symbol of the beginnings of Western civilization. A visit to the Acropolis includes a tour of other buildings of great historical significance, like the Parthenon, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike.

    Athens has no shortage of archaic monuments to visit, but a must-see is the Ancient Agora, the famed marketplace that was the pulsing heart of the city in Socrates and Plato’s day. Excavations include temples and a concert hall, and the museum houses fascinating smaller pieces sometimes thousands of years old.

  • Outings

    For a glimpse of picture-postcard Greece, tourists make their way up to Anafiotika, a 19th-century neighbourhood on the Acropolis hill. Cascading bougainvillea against whitewashed walls baking in the sun feel miles away from the hustle and bustle down below.

    Pláka is a popular neighbourhood, and many of the stores along its narrow streets are filled with mass-produced souvenirs. Not so at Byzantino, where the exquisite jewellery replicating ancient Greek pieces is handcrafted in an Athens workshop. The Greek Olympic team even sport their jewels at the opening and closing ceremonies.

  • Delightful Greek cuisine

    A bright and modern mezedhopoleio (or appetizer bar) in central Athens, Tzitzikas & Mermingas serves deliciously unique variations on Greek dishes, like Lamb with Haloumi Cheese in Pastry.

    Located in Gazi, the hottest new Athenian district, the Butcher Shop is the trendiest psistaria (roast house) in town. Food lovers go wild for their free-range boar.
