Athens: points of interest
Homeland of art, theatre and philosophy, Athens is a mysterious and charming place, which deserves to be discovered slowly and in complete freedom; so, taking advantage of the car rental service at Athens Airport seems really useful to enjoy all the magic of this city.
The first place to visit is the Acropolis: nestled upon a rocky spur, from which it dominates the valley below, this area hosts dozens of archaeological remains of columns and temples, among which Parthenon stands out. It was first transformed into a church and later into a military fortification.
North-West from the Acropolis, there is the Agora, the ancient square of Athens. Today it is possible to visit only some ruins, but in the Classical era the Agora was considered the beating heart of the city, fulcrum of the commercial, administrative and politic powers of Athens, enhanced by temples and private houses.
Moreover, any self-respecting trip to Athens must include a stop at the National Archaeological Museum: considered among the ten most important ones in the world, this museum witnesses the passage of the various dominations that have been succeeded in Greece. Divided into three parts, the museum hosts sculptures, statues, pottery and relics of the Classical era, bronzes, funerary urns, jewels and hunting weapons.
The beaches in the surroundings of Athens
After this full immersion in the Greek culture, you can enjoy some hours of relax on the beach: in just 5 minutes by car you can reach Paleo Falirou, one of the nearest beaches to Athens city centre, that was used as a harbour in ancient times (this explains the name of Paleo); it is a urban beach, surrounded by buildings, but it is still appreciated and attended by the Athenians, who pour here in summertime for the nightlife.
With a car rented on RentalUp, it will take half an hour to get to one of the most beautiful coasts of Attica region, Vouliagmeni: very wide beaches of white sand lapped by a crystal-clear sea and enclosed at the extremities within two green peninsulas, covered by the Mediterranean scrub, which offer a really spectacular frame.
