Lavrio is the coastal town in the southeastern part of Attica which is the region where Athens is located. This is a great place to visit if you want to go to restaurants and shop around, but also be by the water. Personally, I get pretty tired of staying in downtown Athens because there's not much of a breeze and I can't get to the beach very quickly. This is only super easy if you're renting a car, otherwise you can get to the beach or visit closer beach areas like Glyfada.

Wow! This place looks fantastic. Seems like it is a bit of a "miniature" downtown Athens... off the beaten track, plenty to do, and a nice way to spend the day.
 
There is a fantastic walking holiday for you whether you want to explore the beautiful islands of Crete, Naxos, Santorini, or Andros; hike Mount Olympus for impressive views; or journey into the heart of Greece to discover ancient wonders in Athens and Meteora. Car rental services are increasingly popular as an alternative mode of transportation. Renting a car is highly recommended unless you are visiting a neighbouring town or state and returning home the next day. CRETARENT is a reputable car rental company with 40 years of industry experience. We deliver your rental car to Heraklion and Chania, as well as all Cretan airports and ports, or to your hotel if you prefer, and we have a brand new large fleet of vehicles to choose from.

Has Anyone Watched a Game in Opap Arena?

I am a huge sports fan but have never watched a football game at Opap Arena. I am trying to figure out if I should take in a game next time I am in Greece. From what I understand, the Arena is in the Athens area? Here's the link:


Any recommendations you have would be great. In particular, I see from the website that there is a restaurant there. Is it any good, or should I plan to eat somewhere else?

Has anyone here seen a performance in Epidavros?

I am so fascinated by Ancient Greek history and from what I understand, some of the ancient theaters are still intact and performances are being held there. I've been research Epidavros and noticed that they hold performances there in the summer. Has anyone been? What was it like?

I've seen footage online of people marveling at the amazing acoustics, and I want to experience this for myself.
