There is an app that completely changed the way I shop on the go and enriched my favorite airport shopping ritual! I guess that's another reason for me to travel more!
I could easily think of Athens Airport as a home from home for me. It is my base, the place where all my travels begin and where I appreciate last minute shopping at the airport more than anywhere else. A few days ago I shared with you the new one Hellenic Duty Free Shops Experience at Athens airport - my shopping paradise before every trip.
I'm that kind of girl who loves to be rewarded, loves being a member of a private club, and definitely appreciates a "little something" when shopping. The most recent addition to My Travel Apps is the Red by Dufry App which offers discounts and exclusive advantages on all transactions inside the airport.
By downloading the app, I became a Silver member, benefiting from a 5% discount effective immediately! I earn 5 points for every euro on purchases at the airport; 2,000 points are equivalent to a Gold member status with 7% reduction and 5,000 Platinum points with 10% reduction.
Hello Platinum World, here I am!
As a Red by Dufry member you get a QR code with which you get immediate discounts at airport stores and I'm so excited I can't wait to travel so I can use my trip as an excuse to shop more!
The RED application is currently available in Greece - Russia - Switzerland and Spain. It is only a matter of time before expanding to more destinations!

The best time to visit Italy are the months of May, June, and September. Compared to the peak summer months of July and August, these months offer more comfortable temperatures and there are fewer crowds ( except around Easter ). The country experiences four classic seasons per year, although there is a marked difference between the wetter, cooler North and the drier, warmer South. The rainiest months pretty much everywhere are usually October and November.
Fall ( September – November ) : temperatures cool down gradually, although September is usually still very pleasant. Expect crisp fall leaves and some sunnier days, but plan for wet weather too. Fall carries many of the same benefits as spring, but with slightly less predictable weather.
Winter : temperatures in the South remain mild in winter, while Northern Italy is normally wet and cold. Winter in the Italian Alps is fantastic though for skiing and snowboarding, but the ski resorts do get crowded so book early.
Travelers wishing to visit Italy can use a bus, train, plane, or boat to get there. Most tourists arrive by plane though, often landing in Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport, the country’s busiest airport. This is the preferred point of entry in Italy when you want to visit Rome, or tour the entire country. Click here for a continuously updated list of airlines that offer direct flights to Rome.
Although Rome is the main getaway for most visitors to Italy, it’s often easier and cheaper to fly directly to/from one of the country’s other airports. It can also save you a lot of time to book a multi-city ticket, hereby arriving in one airport and leaving from another ( for example fly in via Milan in the north and fly out Naples in the south ). The following airports are of interest for most tourist itineraries :
Milan Malpenza Airport ( north ) is the largest international airport in the Milan metropolitan area in northern Italy ( and also the main getaway to the Italian Lakes ). Click here for a continuously updated list of airlines that offer direct flights to Milan.
Venice Marco Polo airport ( north ) is the international airport of Venice. It offers flights to many European metropolitan areas as well as some partly seasonal long-haul routes to the United States, Canada, South Korea and the Middle East.
