    Modern fun in Ancient Athens

    Traveling to Athens and visiting its ancient epicentre is truly like a journey back in time. With the silhouette of the Acropolis overlooking the city from nearly all angles, you'll find yourself regularly glancing up in awe at this iconic symbol of democracy. Walk among the gods, thanks to preserved temples that line the streets and pop up unsuspectingly, and have a glug of ouzo where the world's greatest philosophers once pontificated. Check out Athens vacation rentals available in the traditional Plaka neighbourhood or browse more modern options along the beach. You're sure to fall in love with this historic, capital city.

    Market haggling, mezze eating and beach hopping

    While the historic sites are sure to top your Athens holiday bucket list, there's much more to see. The modern side of Greece's capital city is well worth your time, whether you're bar-hopping with the locals, strolling the bohemian galleries of Exarchia or eating mezze in Koukaki. Opt for a walking tour of the city to get the lay of the land or take a bus tour to explore some of the outskirts, including the beach towns along the self-proclaimed Athenian Riviera. For a throwback to ancient times, practise your haggling skills in the Monastiraki flea markets.

    A city steeped in history, literally from top to bottom

    Whether you're taking in the views from below or hiking up to the top, paying homage to the Parthenon is a must while in Athens. It's safe to say you haven't truly explored the city if you haven't tipped your cap to this iconic monument, and a tour of the Acropolis Museum complements any visit perfectly. Other ruins near the "High City" include the Temple of Zeus and the Ancient Agora. Expand your Athens vacation rentals search to include the nearby neighbourhoods of Plaka, Koukaki and Syntagma for central spots with easy access to the city's history.

    Sunny days are (mostly) here to stay in Athens

    Thanks to its southern European location, Athens boasts long, warm summers, with bright days made for outdoor dining. June through August are known to be hot and crowded, while the shoulder months of late spring and early autumn are ideal for visiting. Pore over Athens vacation rentals anytime between May and November, and you'll find plenty of sun-filled days made for exploring this historic, pulsing city. Winter is ideal for smaller crowds and lower prices, but layers and some light rain gear are a must for your packing list.

    The ultimate welcome to Greece's mainland

    Situated on the Grecian peninsula of Attica, Athens serves as a true gateway to the mainland. Looking south from the city, you'll see the Aegean Sea, with the stunning hills of Cape Sounio serving as an ideal day trip from the city. Expect sandy beaches and pebbled coastlines along the way, plus tiny villages and welcoming locals. Thanks to easy ferry access from Athens' Piraeus port, the city also offers an urban escape to the Peloponnese, where you can cycle through the olive groves or lounge on the beach, all within 2 hours of the city.
