Seeing the City of Athens on a Greece Sailing Adventure
For many people, the remarkable architecture of the ancient city of Athens is considered some of the most beautiful in the world. Almost everyone can recognise the iconic Athenian backdrop on postcards, but experiencing the city for real on a Greece sailing holiday is so much better than simply seeing a still image.
One of the best things about Athens is that it is not just about crumbling buildings and historic artefacts (although there are plenty of those if you want to see them). Greece, after all, is known as a top holiday destination, and Athens itself is home to a number of beautiful beaches, mainly south of the city, that are ready to welcome visitors both old and new. Not only that, tourists can make the most of the warm sunshine from one of Athens’ many vantage points high above the city.
The city is also home to some real pockets of calm. Take the Agora, for example: this tranquil green space in the middle of one of the world’s busiest cities is a great place to simply relax before planning your next move. And your next move might just be visiting the most famous of Athenian locations – the Acropolis.
