City

You probably won't avoid passing by the capital. The cradle of Western thinking, Athens is a vibrant city rich with history, arts, and nightlife.

If you're heading to the Aegean islands, you will probably pass through Piraeus, a city adjacent to Athens and a major commercial and maritime center.

Island

Without cars or motorbikes, the tranquility of this island is unmatched. A short trip from Athens, this cosmo island is Athenians' favorite escape.

Without many visitors, this rugged-rock island is optimal for hiking and beach time. No wonder the Goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, was born here.
