Just 20 km south of the Greek capital lies the alluring Apollo Coast, also known as the Athenian Riviera. This is an ideal place to swim, relax at a waterfront café, walk along the picture-perfect pedestrian streets and marinas, or dine by the sea or shop in one of the area’s modern shopping centres. Places to visit in the surrounding area include:
Some of the most impressive yachts in the Mediterranean dock at Flisvos Marina, whose pedestrian promenade is the destination for a relaxing stroll, a fancy cocktail, or a great meal with a perfect sea view.
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is the newest addition of attractions, thanks to the renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano. It is a multifunctional and environmentally sustainable education, arts, and recreation destination, serving as the new home to both the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera, and also hosts various workshops for adults and children, as well as cultural events.
Glyfada’s downtown area is an energetic shopping hub where boutique stores are sprinkled between cafes, eateries, and bars.
A marina and a brace of private beaches are the trademarks of the seaside suburb of Vouliagmeni, whereas the picturesque harbour offers stunning views of the distant Saronic Gulf islands. The suburb name was taken after Lake Vouliagmeni (“Sunken Lake”), renowned for its healing and rejuvenating waters.
The southernmost tip of greater Athens, where the ancient Greeks built the inspiring Temple of Poseidon in honour of the god of the sea. Perched high on the rocky headland jutting out over the Saronic Gulf, the gleaming marble columns once welcomed the ancient Athenians home as they sailed back into the Aegean Sea. Today, Cape Sounion is one of the most coveted spots on the Riviera to admire the sunset.
