Athens is famous for its gorgeous tourist attractions. However, when you decide to visit it you can also enjoy beautiful beaches in the north-eastern of Attica peninsula.
One of the best beaches you can relax when you are in here is in Porto Rafti. The city is located in Rafti’s golf, golf of Aegean Sea, at 35 km far from Athens. Until the collapse of Roman Empire, the seaport was a commercial place. Today is out of use due to environmental problems. The gorgeous coastal city is populated with holiday apartments and Athenian homes. There is no trade that once dominated most islands.
What activities you must do while you’re in porto Rafti?
Porto Rafti and its surroundings offer many delightful surprises. From the plethora of beaches to campfire, ancient sites, monasteries and museums
The first thing I suggest to you is to stay an evening in the city and also search for a house from where you can have a perfect view to the city. It’s fascinating to see the sunset while you’re enjoying a glass of prosecco. The second thing you should do it, is to relax and to enjoy the beach and the sea. There are some absolutely gorgeous unequipped beaches. I suggest you to try one of them. It’s well hidden but it’s worth it the effort to search for them. And until you find it, you will enjoy for sure the beauties of the city. The third thing you should not miss when you are in Porto Rafti, is to try at least a seafood or souvlaki restaurant by the sea. The city is full of dozens of sophisticated, traditional places with greek music, live bands and others. It’s quite hard to choose one of them.
What you can visit in Porto Rafti ’s surroundings?
The Artemis’s Sanctuary from Brauron is one of the most important tourist attractions in Attica. According to the legend, Artemis, the goddess of nature, of life and fertility came to Brauron as a protector of marriages, women and child birth. If you’re passionate about culture and archeology, or simply you’re melting in the heat of the sun, the Vravron archaeological museum, offers a large exhibition of ancient sculptures and objects from the ancient Greek culture. Ideally would be to rent or come with a car to reach all these goals .

As we have started with Athens holidays, the city with a glorious history, we can’t pass the attraction from here. The most famous tourist attraction in here is Acropolis. Its architecture and location leave you breathless. The museum can be visit also during the night, but only when it’s full moon. However, a dinner at Chocolat Royal offers you a wonderful view of the Acropolis during the night. And also the food in here is very tasty.
Other tourist attractions you can visit in Athens are: Zeus’s Temple, Zappeion, Panathenaic stadium, Agora and the old centre of the city which makes you feel like you’re in ancient Greece
