Holidays in Athens

Did you know that 650,000 people reside in this part of Attica? You're bound to have met a fair few of them by the time you finish your trip!

In a sparkling destination overflowing with things to see and do, the Parthenon and Acropolis are the ones that visitors keep coming back for. Syntagma Square and the Acropolis Museum are every bit as iconic.

An afternoon at the Museum of Greek Children's Art or Allou Fun Park is a fantastic opportunity for some family bonding. If that isn't enough to wear the young ones out, why not visit the Emotions Museum of Childhood and the Hellenic Children’s Museum as well?

Both adults and kids will have a great time getting close to the collection of intriguing animals at the Attica Zoological Park and Greek Reptile Centre. Glyfada Sea Turtle Rescue Centre is another excellent attraction which teaches visitors about conservation and animal care.

After high-stakes gaming and a sparkling atmosphere? Go straight to the Regency Casino Mont Parnes! It's the ideal venue to kick off a night out!

Check out the native flora while you explore the beautiful garden beds at the Diomedes Botanic Garden.

When you want to get away from the fast pace of the city, take off to an urban oasis like the Filopappos Hill or the Athens National Garden. Alternatively, stretch your legs and keep the kids active by wandering around Pedion Areos Park or Koutouki Cave.

Keep a lookout for different species of waterbirds at Vouliagmeni Spa Lake. Or, if you're after some action, why not ask about water sports at Lake Marathon?

Longing for a bit of time by the ocean? Enjoy the salty sea breeze on your face and plunge a toe in the water at Kavouri Beach and Voula Beach. You can also enjoy a leisurely walk along onAqua Sports Park, another popular piece of coastline.

You probably know about its must-see museums and malls, but don't forget that Athens has some marvellous natural environments too. Mount Lycabettus and Areopagus Hill are two to keep in the front of your mind. Hymettus and Mars HIll are two more that are worth a look.

Whether you'd like to discover something new or just take five in the calm setting, the Benaki Museum and the National Archaeological Museum of Athens should do the job. Remember to ask about one-off events! If you've got the time, also go to the Technopolis and the Benaki Islamic Art Museum.

From the design of different ships to the artefacts found onboard, the intriguing displays at the Averof Museum and the Hellenic Maritime Museum will catch the eye of anyone who's interested in seafaring history.

The intriguing scientific objects and exhibits at Athens Planetarium and National Observatory of Athens are bound to get your brain buzzing. For even more from the science realm, make the trip to the Mineralogical Museum of Lavrio. Make sure you ask about any temporary exhibits that might be on.

Build on your knowledge of the natural world with some time at the Byzantine and Christian Museum and the National Historical Museum. With so many weird and wonderful things exhibited in these buildings, you might not know where to begin! For more of our planet's riches, continue on to the Kanellopoulos Museum and the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus.

Art lovers come from all corners of the world to check out Athens' celebrated collections, and the Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art and the National Museum of Contemporary Art are usually among the first stops on their lists. If they leave you feeling inspired, continue onwards to the Athens National Gallery and the Museum of the City of Athens.

Take a step back through time and explore the events and characters that have contributed to the growth of the Athens region at the Numismatic Museum of Athens and the Eleftherios Venizelos Museum. For an even deeper look into the past, also check out the Athens University History Museum and the Museum of the Center for the Acropolis Studies.

Athens certainly delivers when it comes to historic sites. You'll be able to get a deeper awareness of bygone times at Roman Agora and the Ancient Agora. If that doesn't satisfy the history buff in you, head onward to Hellenic Parliament and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Get your fill of both spirituality and history at the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike. If you're happy to see even more, keep going to Greek Evangelical Church and Kaisariani Monastery.

Don't pack up your suitcase just yet, there's still lots to do! Have you visited the National Library of Greece and Flisvos Marina yet? Or you could also check out Alimos Marina and Glyfada Marina.
