Towards the southern part of mainland Greece, you will find Athens, the capital city, which is also home to one of the oldest civilisations in the world. Here you can use your hire car to explore the sites that are spread around the city, including the ancient ruins of the Acropolis and Parthenon, the National Archaeological Museum, and the Temple of Poseidon.
The most popular parts of the country for travellers, are found to the south of here on various islands, many of which seem like they were designed with holidays in mind. Notable islands which are favourites among locals and foreigners alike, include Mykonos, Santorini and Crete, each with their own atmosphere and scenery, but all highly recommended!
