Attica encompasses the metropolitan area of Athens and its suburbs, Piraeus, Lavrion and a few islands of the Saronic Gulf. Apart of the numerous archaeological monuments and the countless options for entertainment and shopping, Attica is a great destination for all … enjoy thematic walks around the city, follow pleasant cycling routes with family or friends, attend various gastronomy related events like cooking classes or wine tastings, try exploring Attica’s mountains with their rich flora and fauna through well maintained hiking paths. Or head to the sea where you can practice water sports or just relax in a cruise to the nearby islands.
