Athens Riviera

The Athens Riviera is the summer playground for Athenians when they want to escape city life for swimming, enjoying waterfront cafés, strolling along seafront promenades and marinas, shopping in the area’s boutiques, dining by the sea or visiting one of the coast’s night clubs.

Just 10 miles south of Athens, the city streets give way to idyllic palm-fringed beaches and beachfront promenades of the Athens Riviera which stretches 50 kilometres along the Saronic Gulf to the southern most point of Attica, Cape Sounio.

Sounio
Sounio is famous for its splendid Temple of Poseidon, one of the most celebrated archaeological sites in Europe and the second most important ancient temple in Attica.  Summer villas, open-air tavernas and pretty bays are almost hidden from site in the lush vegetation of the Sounio National Park.


  


Attica

Attica, the region surrounding Athens offers a wealth of activities for leisure and culture.Relive the myths of Greek legend at the Acropolis and Temple of Poseidon; chart Olympic history - past and present - at the original and contemporary Olympic venues; enjoy a round at the Athens golf course; wreck-dive in the crystal waters of the Aegean; spend some time cruising between the islands or party till dawn at the city’s legendary night-spots.
