  • Coming from Athens by bus or tram, but also E2 A2 and even those bus Deckers, taken at the base of the Acropolis, they also visit the port of Piraeus and the surrounding areas, including Glyfada, you feel like you're in a different region, very different from dirt and mess in Athens, almost another world. Glyfada is a very modern coast station and well equipped both in shops restaurants, marinas and night clubs, in which distract you and spend a pleasant time. You can rent boats for day trips and lunch included with fish, or spend your money doing shopping in well-stocked stores of Boardwalk or eat good fish in many pleasant restaurants in the station, or take advantage of numerous schools of swimming and diving. There are also many shipyards for boats of all types and bags.

  • After it is 45 minutes from the city to the beach, gravel-like and little groomed beach resorts expect a part. If you want only a place for sunbathing, is right in here. Atmosphere should expect no one here really.
