Hey, you. Yeah, you—buckle up, because you’re going to Athens! Ah, can’t you just smell the beginnings of Western Civilisation in the air? Or maybe that’s just the delicious lamb kebab.
Either way, you are in for a treat when you visit this busy city that melds past with present. The more you save on hotels in Athens when you use lastminute.com.au, the more irresistible kebabs you get to stuff in your face. Don’t worry, you’ll walk them off later at the Acropolis.
Even if you aren’t a history buff, you owe it to yourself to walk in the footsteps…er, sandals of Socrates and Plato. It isn’t hard to find ancient monuments in Athens; the amazing Acropolis rises stoically above the city on one of Athens’s famous hills. Point your Athens car rental in that direction, and you can’t miss it. Take a deep soak in history as you wander around the Parthenon and Temple of Athena. Yep, your toga looks great. Those other tourists are just gawking at you because they are jealous!
When it’s time to snap back into the present, the city of today won’t disappoint. Book car hire in Athens to explore the city proper. The Plaka, Monastirak and Thissio districts in particular can give you some great shopping and partying opportunities, not to mention authentic eats that will blow the little Greek restaurant in your hometown to flavourful smithereens.
Take it from us, you haven’t lived until you order a souvlaki—a grilled kebab wrapped in pita bread and dipped in flavoured yoghurt. We’re pretty sure Plato would have been proud with how far Western Civilisation has come!
If you’d like to do some relaxing, hit the beach in nearby Aegina. Book Athens car hire and make a beeline for the shoreline. Aegina is a nearby island that gives you the perfect excuse to break in your new flippers at the beach and explore more ancient ruins.
Maybe you’ll never be a world-famous Greek philosopher, but we know you’ll feel pretty smart when you save big on Athens packages through lastminute.com.au. See you there!
