Holidaymakers have begun their return to Athens from the Greek Easter weekend, as of Easter Monday. 

Incoming traffic was particularly heavy at the Athens-Corinth and the Athens-Lamia National Highways.

Travellers to and from eastern Macedonia, western Peloponnese, western Central Greece, Evia, and central Greece overall are likely to meet rain and local thunderstorms, with phenomena expected to gradually recede by night.

Large trucks weighing over 3.5 tons will not be allowed on Athens-inbound highways before 22:00 on Easter Monday.
