The ancient city of Athens and the surrounding area has one of the most astonishing histories in the world, and a car rental holiday here will open your eyes to relics from the dawn of civilisation. There are so many monuments and archaeological wonders to see in the Greek Capital and beyond, you'll definitely need car rental to make the most of your stay.
With a history going back over 3,000 years, Athens is home to the awe-inspiring Acropolis, the ancient Port of Piraeus and the majestic Temple of Poseidon in Sounio. The city is best explored on foot, but car rental really comes into its own when touring the region around Athens.
No car rental tour of the area would be complete without a trip to the Vouliagmeni Peninsula, a picturesque region just 20 km from the centre of Athens. Renowned for its famous lake and mineral water spa, it's a memorable place to visit.
The Methan area is another treat for car rental holidaymakers. Southwest of Athens and part of the Peloponnese Peninsula, the region is characterised by its stunning landscape of 32 volcanic domes. Car rental travellers will also be impressed by Methan's ancient green forests, rare animals and plants such as its exquisite orchids.
Athens car rental will also take you out of the city to Neo Faliro on the coast, with its impressive Stadium of Peace and Friendship, and the awesome Karaiskaki Stadium of Olympiakos. This area hosted several water sports competitions during the 2004 Olympic Games.
