Athens Attica, Greece beach guide & holiday information
Loading...
Athens, ah Athens, filled with ancient memories, filled with ghosts of Caesars past and battles won and lost. She still stands after three thousand, four hundred years, still bathed in sunshine, still proud, and still dominating the Attica periphery.
Tourists might wonder if Athens, the capitol of Greece, may not be finally defeated by the dreadful cancer of pollution. However, the powers that be seem to have taken recognition of the value of their historic legacy, and have implemented 'Pedestrian Only' areas of historical importance. Today about five million people call Athens home and they welcome visitors offering accommodation and services to keep the lucrative tourist trade alive. On one hand there are all the historical artifacts and ruins, the most famous of which must be the pillars left standing of the mighty acropolis. But on the other is the teeming mass of people who populate Athens, and the resultant pollution.

For tourists and their families there is a plethora of sights, museums and theatres, as well as bazaars and great shopping in modern up-to-date malls. For those whose main interest in life is food there are many fine dining venues, especially at Plaka. For sun worshipers there are any number of beaches to choose from, and at night singles can enjoy getting to know the beach bunnies they have met and celebrate life with them dancing at the wide selection of nightlife venues. Accommodation is available with a hundred and twenty five different hotels to choose from five star luxury suites to cheap more affordable rates for travelers and their families.
