Athens, the birthplace of Western civilization: The name of Greece‘s capital, Athens (Greek: Αθήνα, Athína), derives from the name of the Goddess of wisdom and intelligence, Athena. This unique city is where democracy first saw the light of day, and where the Parthenon, the gem of architecture, was built.
Today, about a third of the population of Greece (around 4,5 million people) live in Athens, and the modern city offers an endless variety of culture and entertainment.
Yacht Charter from Athens in the Saronic Gulf
You can plan an amazing yacht charter holiday in the Saronic Gulf south of Athens with reliable winds and a good variety of islands to visit. The coast of Athens is the most crowded area in Greece, full of ships (small and large), ferries, fishing boats, sailing yachts, motor yachts, and catamarans. Start your sailing holiday from Athens and discover the unspoilt islands of the Saronic Gulf and Argolic Gulf.
Piraeus, Athens harbour, is one of the largest shipping junctions in the Mediterranean, as it has been since ancient times. It has made quite a name for itself amongst travellers to Greece, due to its attractive nightlife and its romantic seafood restaurants and taverns. The coast from Piraeus to Kalamaki is lined by high-rise apartment buildings. During the hot summers, the nightlife moves from the city to this coastal strip and its numerous beach clubs and restaurants.
