INCENTIVE ATHENS

OpenClose

 

A few possibilities of activities in and around Athens.

Ancient Greece

Athens, the capital of Greece, where the European society started. Ever since the Olympic Games of 2004, Athens became again one of the most popular cities to go to for a long weekend.

 

The structural improvement of the infrastructure and the new boulevards between the archaeological sites in the city centre makes this city a pleasure to stay at. By taking big measurements on the traffic, Athens discarded herself from the ‘smog’ blanket.
Of course a visit to the Acropolis is an unforgettable experience, but also the nature in and just outside the city is worth to see. And how to do this intensive and more adventures? By a jeep tour of course.
The ones who have been to Greece will remember the many little Greece churches spread around Greece. Experience painting one icon yourself and discover the ancient old history of the painting and its materials.
Don’t worry about the culinary side of the trip; we are experts in finding for you the greatest and best taverna’s in the area. Athens welcomes you throughout the whole year!
