Make a holiday rental apartment or accommodation in Athens, Greece your home away from home

Athens is one of Europe’s most famous cities. Holiday guides to Athens are splashed with pictures of the legacies of Ancient Greece, especially of Acropolis Hill, and although this is one of the sights you must see before you die, there is so much more to see and so many things to do in Athens that you must spend at least a week in accommodation in Athens to really get a taste for this magnificent city.

Things to do in Athens, Greece

Athens is the birthplace of modern civilization as every holiday guide to Athens will proudly point out, and as a result, the list of attractions to explore eclipses the attractions of almost any other city in the world. There are some excellent tours to do from accommodation in Athens, taking in the most famous archaeological treasures within the city, including one of the seven wonders of the world, the Acropolis, as well as Lycabettus Hill, the Theatre of Dionysus, Herodeion, Poseidon’s Temple and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Those wishing to explore without the constraints of a tour group are perfectly placed to get a real view of Athens, and there are many excellent museums throughout the city giving visitors all the information and advice they could need for a full exploration of Athens.

Life in Athens is highly social and fantastically laid back. There are many atmospheric cafes in which to relax, letting the world pass you by. The cafes are always a hive of activity, with a huge amount of entertainment put on. Many Athenians use the cafes as a meeting point before heading to the theatre or a concert, of which there are many throughout the year. Despite the amazing historical attractions of the city, Athens is in fact a bustling, modern place, with some excellent shopping to be done too.

Athens is famous for its nightlife too. Evenings start very late in Athens, with most people heading to a restaurant to start their evening between 9 and 10 in the evening. The many nightclubs of Athens are open late into the night, with cafes, bars and clubs buzzing until well after 3am.

The coastline of Athens, known as the Athenian Riviera, is lined with gorgeous beaches. There are many excellent beaches on which to relax in the sun. This stretch of the coast is also a fantastic place for sailing and windsurfing.

Spring and autumn are still very warm, yet the majority of the tourist crowds have dispersed. Even during December and January, temperatures remain above 10?C during the day.
