Athens is one of the oldest cities on earth and apart from the spectacular 2,000 year old Acropolis and Parthenon, that lies at its heart gazing majestically over every corner, and there are many other reasons to enjoy a luxury Athens And Apollo Coast holiday.
This engaging city has been continuously inhabited for more than seven thousand years and behind the façade of modern day life, Athens remains a collection of charming villages. Those of you who turn off the main streets will find yourselves among a collection of timeless bijou houses with grapevines on the walls, and numerous tavernas to choose from.
For a taste of real Greece, explore the sprawling markets on Athinas St, the herb shops on Sofokleos St, the olive shops on Sokratou St or the hams and blackened sausages on Armadiou St. South of Athens, the Apollo Coast is the Riviera of the Aegean stretching from Piraeus as far as Cape Sounio. Lagonissi, in particular, boasts one of the finest beaches in the Athens vicinity and is conveniently located just 20 kilometres from the airport.
