Visiting Athens with a rental car
Athens is a true open-air museum! It exudes incredible charm, enhanced by the millennia of history that have passed through it.
The visit to the capital can only begin from the Acropolis, which overlooks the city from above. The archaeological site is the symbol of Greece and bears witness to Athens’ ancient splendor. Here, you can visit the impressive Parthenon, after passing through the monumental entrance of the site, known as the Propylaea. The most sacred place, however, is the Erechtheion. Don’t miss the Acropolis Museum, the Temple of Athena Nike, and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. The Acropolis is a treasure trove and also offers breathtaking views of the city: you can admire the Temple of Zeus and the Panathenaic Stadium, among other things.
At the foot of the Acropolis lies the Agora of Athens, the vibrant heart of city life in ancient times.
Athens has many distinctive neighborhoods, where it’s worth getting lost in their colorful alleys. Among the narrow streets of Plaka, Monastiraki, Psirri, and Gazi, you can experience the most authentic Greek atmosphere… and taste its delicious traditional cuisine.
Thanks to the rented car from Acarent, you can also visit the wonderful beaches near Athens.
Thessaloniki: one of the favorite destinations for tourists
Thessaloniki perhaps needs no introduction, as it is one of the most renowned tourist destinations in the world. Although it may not have the historical and cultural richness of Athens, the ancient Thessaloniki also offers interesting attractions. Not to be missed, to name a couple of examples, are the White Tower and the Arch of Galerius.
Thessaloniki, however, is famous primarily for its dreamy beaches, all easily accessible thanks to the car rental service offered by Acarent. Among these, we absolutely must mention Paralia Katerini, Agia Triada, Makrigialos, Epanomi, Asprovalta, and Perea Beach.
The most beautiful Greek islands
Leaving the mainland, you can immerse yourself in a sea of beauty, quite literally. Greece is famous for its idyllic islands, and the choices are truly overwhelming.
Rhodes is the largest island in the Dodecanese and is also known as the “Island of the Roses.” It was once home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Colossus of Rhodes. Although it is now destroyed, the island still preserves many other wonders to explore with a rental car.
Santorini is a volcanic island that offers extremely picturesque and romantic views. The white and blue (colors of Greece) dominate everything, and the beaches are enchanting.
Corfu is a legendary destination, traversed by Odysseus and the Argonauts. Pristine nature and lush vegetation frame its paradisiacal beaches.
Mykonos is a beautiful but also lively island. It is a favorite destination for the younger crowd who want to enjoy crystal-clear waters and vibrant nightlife.
These are just a few of the numerous and beautiful islands of Greece. Once you’ve been here, you’ll be eager to return and discover the other wonders of this ancient nation. Make your travels more convenient with the car rental service offered by Acarent!
