This historically famous peninsula, situated along the spectacular coast of south-central Greece, is renowned for its ancient architecture, traditional Greek buildings and temples and capital city, Athens.
Here you can absorb the country’s magical history and visit stunning sights such as the world-famous Acropolis Hill – also known as the Sacred Rock, the city of Piraeus and the breathtaking neighbourhood of Castella and the Great Harbour.
We have two recommended beach hotels in Attica, The Margi – on the smartest stretch of the Athens Riviera, and just 25 minutes from the city – and, an an hour from central Athens, we recommend Cape Sounio, which enjoys spectacular views across the bay to the ancient Temple of Poseidon (pictured above).
Other popular attractions in Attica include Mount Pentelicus, Mount Hymettus, Eleusis and Cape Sunium, where legend has it, King Aegeus waited for his son, Theseus, to return after battling the Minotaur. Alongside the museums Attica boasts some great shopping opportunities and a wide variety of excellent restaurants, tavernas and bars, suitable for any occasion.
