Athens International Airport Car RentalAs the capital of Greece, Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world. It has a rich history dating back centuries and has plenty to offer visitors to this wonderfully diverse city in the way of attractions. Perhaps the first thing you will notice about Athens is how busy it is, even when compared with much larger cities, Athens is busy. The noise from the cars and the bikes whizzing by can be too loud to bear. However, if you are planning on sightseeing while in the city, which is of course something highly recommended, then a car is a necessity. The traffic won’t seem so bad once you are in it as it is always on the go, and there are rarely jams or traffic hold ups.

A visit to the Parthenon which can be found perched high on the top of the Acropolis has to be done. It is one of the most iconic landmarks worldwide and the views from the top across the city are unbelievable. It can be difficult to get up there for those with walking difficulties but for those who can it is worth the effort. The Parthenon is even more stunning at night when viewed from a distance as it is all lit up spectacularly.

Take a drive using your car hire vehicle to Plaka. Another must see part of town. This is the older part of the city and has many stone buildings and cobbled streets. It is also the location of a fabulous market where anything from leather goods to knick knacks can be bought. Popular purchases tend to be the oil paintings on canvas that are sold everywhere you look. They do make a great souvenir for back home once they have been framed.

The home to the original Olympic Games Athens has many archaeological sites with historic and cultural significance. Some are open for the public to see, so for those with a keen sense of history, plan a stop at one of these and spend a short time being transported back to years gone by.

There are two great shopping malls in Athens; one has a giant aquarium filled with all kinds of marine life.

Worked Out Ok

Original car had a broken cigarette lighter power which they knew about. my gps needs that power source and car had no usb outlets, so they had to supply another vehicle which meant re-doing all the paperwork again.
