Ideal for:
Culture and historic tours, soft adventure, biking and moderate trekking tours.

Attica, dominated by the country’s capital Athens, is certainly worth a short visit. Visit the main archaeological sites (Acropolis, Archaeological Museum, etc) and spend some time strolling in Plaka (the oldest neighborhood in Athens) and Monastiraki Flea Market, underneath the Acropolis. Experience an exciting coastal drive from Athens to Cape Sounion and enjoy the sun plunging into the sea from the Temple of Poseidon. If you have more time and you feel like hiking or biking in fir forest, Mt.Parnitha is just one hour away and you can enjoy hiking at altitudes of 1.100 meters, mountain or road biking, rock climbing and vaving. There is even a mountain hut where you can spend a night or two viewing the busy city from far away.
