Connecting flight to Cyprus with separate ticket


I am traveling to Cyprus for business. For budgeting reasons, I had to book the connecting flights on different airlines, meaning I purchased two one-way tickets: one from Italy to Athens, and then the second one from Athens to Cyprus (Olympic Airlines). I have almost 2 hours between the arrival of the first flight and the departure of the flight to Cyprus, I won't have any luggage to collect and most likely already checked in online. However, I am very concerned this won't be feasible.

Has anyone ever made this kind of arrangements? I assume I will have to exit the terminal and then re-enter the airport even if I do not have checked-in luggage, is the Athens airport very big and dispersive? Also, I am European flying within Europe so I do not require any Visa or special documents. Any tips will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
