Welcome! Attica: The heart of Greece, a unique all year round destination for each visitor A sense of fulfilment brought to the visitor who has come and experienced Attica, who has spoken with its people and who has left with the certainty that he/she will come back, is worth a thousand words when it comes to the uniqueness of this place. Multidimensional Attica, with its authentic cultural routes conjuring up the past, but also with significant moments and experiences reflecting the present, is what we must, by all means, highlight and recommend to travellers from all four corners of the world, in order for them to keep their memories alive far into the future. Rena Dourou Regional Governor of Attica

The vast sea-front area with marinas and Blue Flags, the bustling Port of Piraeus, a historic place and a source of wealth from Antiquity, the Saronic islands, whose specificity lies in their nature and their proximity with the city, the medieval villages of Kythera and Antikythera, the port and the ancient quarries in Lavrio, Eleusina, where the Eleusinian Mysteries were held each year, Marathon, the cradle of Western Civilisation, the environmental wealth of the mountains of Penteli, Hymettus and Parnitha, as well as the volcano and the thermal springs of Methana, are the places to be. Indeed, multifaceted Attica, a destination of global outreach, offers multiple and diverse experiences to the visitor, whether he/she is interested in short holiday breaks (short breaks), or business trips, conference tourism, gastronomy, culture, sea tourism and/or sports tourism. Attica is the destination to offer unique tourist experiences all year round. Just indulge yourselves into one experience at a time!

We would love to hear your comments! Θα θέλαμε να ακούσουμε τη γνώμη σας! facebook.com/AthensGuide angio@citycontact.gr like us οn facebook

I invite you to combine your visit to Athens with a concert at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, to dine at a restaurant with a view on the Acropolis, to go onto the beach with friends, and, in no time, to escape into turquoise diamonds, the Saronic islands. Do not miss the opportunity to visit Attica’s museums, hosting unique exhibits, in every corner of this region, or to find hidden treasures along with your children during digital tours, to admire works of art at each step and to taste traditional wine varieties whilst experiencing a sunset at Sounion. We, therefore, welcome you to this optimistic and modern Attica all year round, and we invite you to add your piece to its colourful mosaic, as if it were a Byzantine work of art. We wish you a pleasant stay and we are confident that you will become our friends.

It is best to exchange money at banks or official exchange agencies because in the most touristy areas a high commission is charged. Travellers Checks are also readily accepted and if you are low on cash ATM machines are readily available. Personal checks are not accepted in Greece and although credit card use is widely accepted in the larger cities, some of the smaller villages and islands may have limited acceptability.

A coAstAl trAm ride With the tram, from the Floisvos stop and until the end of the line at the Asklipieio stop, you can hop on and off as many times and wherever you want, enjoying the coastal route with the sea always on your right, many palm trees and grass on the tramlines. Each beach has its charms, in some places there are playgrounds or outdoor markets, while several shops await you on the beach, open already now that it's spring.

Μια παραλιακή διαδροΜή Με το τραΜ Με το τραμ από τη στάση «Φλοίσβος» και μετά, μέχρι το τέρμα της διαδρομής στη στάση «Ασκληπιείο» μπορείτε να ανεβοκατέβετε όσες φορές θέλετε και όπου θέλετε, απολαμβάνοντας την παραθαλάσσια διαδρομή: η θάλσσα πάντα στο δεξί σας χέρι, πολλοί φοίνικες & γρασίδι τις γραμμές του τραμ. κάθε παραλία έχει τις χάρες της, σε μερικά μέρη υπάρχουν παιδικές χαρές ή υπαίθριες αγορές, ενώ σας περιμένουν πολλά παραλιακά μαγαζιά.

children's museums Athens has many museums and other similar places exclusively for children, but most of its major museums also have special programs for children. Indicatively:

Μουσεια για παιδια Η Αθήνα έχει πολλά μουσεία & άλλους ανάλογους χώρους αποκλειστικά για παιδιά, αλλά & τα περισσότερα από τα μεγάλα μουσεία έχουν ειδικά παιδικά προγράμματα. Ενδεικτικά:

The Goulandris Museum of Natural History, in Kifissia (13 Levidou st. Map1, IV2), was founded in 1964. Here, children can admire thousands of specimens of flora and fauna, watch movies, purchase maps or books and participate in various interactive activities focusing on the rich nature of Greece. The Planetarium (see pg 35). This features state-of-the-art devices, which convincingly represent cosmic phenomena and courses (planets, asteroids, comets, constellations, galaxies, suns, supernovae, white dwarfs, etc.), bringing viewers closer to the magic of space. Specially designed seats allow them to tilt their heads backward for greater enjoyment. Programs are available in many languages. The Museum Of Greek Children’s Art (see pg 33). It is a pioneering Museum, one of the very few worldwide that exhibits exclusively drawings and three dimensional artworks created by children 5 to 14 years old. Hellenic Cosmos cultural center (see pg 32) has presented a wide range of activities: interactive exhibitions, exhibitions with modern subject matter, Virtual Reality tours to monuments and sites of our cultural heritage, acclaimed documentaries on Hellenism outside the Greek borders, surfing the Internet, at the Foundation's web site about Hellenic history, and original educational programmes which are designed and materialized by the Foundation's Museum Educators Department. In addition, there are hosted artistic and music events, as well as festivals, lectures and seminars.

This special point is Syntagma area and is considered as the historical center of Athens. It’s landmark, is the beautiful namesake square, decorated by a lovely fountain and a majestic marble staircase which leads to the Amalia avenue.

aleXanDRa leonTaRiToU Athens Walking Tours, Operations Executive

Right across the avenue, lies the Greek Parliament and in front of it, the impressive Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, guarded by the Evzones, the elite troops of Greece. The history of Syntagma square and the Parliament building, as well as most of the buildings surrounding them, is actually the modern history of Athens and Greece in general! Until 1834, the area was just the eastern boundaries of the city of Athens. King Otto, after moving the capital of the newly born Greek Kingdom from Nafplion to Athens, decided to construct here, a square and the Royal Palace (nowadays, the Parliament building). The square was initially named “Palace Square” and it's name changed to “Syntagma square” (Constitution square) after the declaration of the Greek Constitution of 1844, which King Otto was forced to proclaim, due to the rebellion of the military garrison of Athens and the Athenians.

The “heart” of Athens!

To the west, Syntagma area borders with the old part of Athens, the Plaka and the lovely National Garden (former Royal Garden), a green oasis of 38 acres, with over 500 species of plants. On the eastern part of Syntagma square, you will find the main entrance to one of the most beautiful metro stations in the world, the namesake “Syntagma” Station. This four story station operated for the first time in January 2000 and serves two metro lines. It also houses an interesting small museum featuring a variety of items unearthed during the process of building the metro. In the middle of the western end of Syntagma square, starts the pedestrian street Ermou, which is the major shopping area of Athens. It’s a street definitely worth walking along, at least once! Always busy, but yet somehow, never really crowded, this wonderful street is surrounded by beautiful shops selling mostly shoes, clothes, accessories and cosmetics. Ermou is intersected by small alleys, which will lead you to even more shops, selling all kinds of stuff ranging from dried nuts to books or sewing supplies, small cafes and restaurants. If you follow Ermou for approx. 450 meters, you will come upon the church of Panagia Kapnikarea, one of the oldest and most beautiful churches of the city, built around 1050 A.D.

During the Greco- Italian war in 1940 - 41, the building housed the Greek General Headquarters. During the German occupation, it housed the Nazi’s headquarters; after the end of the occupation, the British forces headquarters and during the early stages of the Greek civil war, it housed the Prime Minister Georgios Papandreou, the Council of Ministers and the British military assistance force.

Following Stadiou street, you will come upon the National History Museum, housed in the beautiful neoclassical building of the old Parliament and “guarded” by the statue of Theodoros Kolokotronis, a Greek general and the pre-eminent leader of the Greek war of independence against the Ottoman Empire (1821 - 1829).

On a sunny day, indulge yourself with a walk along this beautiful avenue: Walk past the old flower shops set at the corner of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and known also as “the Parliament’s flower shops”. Yes, even these small shops possess a rich history, as they were opened together with the unveiling of the monument of the Unknown Soldier in 1934 and they served the people who were depositing flowers at the monument, for their lost family members. It takes a visit to the marvelous Syntagma area, in order to realise that Athens, can become your home away from home!
