The prefecture of Attica is hosting the capital of Greece, Athens. Geographically it is a peninsula surrounded by Aegean Sea from the three sides, while on the north it borders with the further Greek Mainland. It is the most accessible destination in Greece due to its direct connections, by air or sea, with most major airports of the world or Mediterranean ports. Attica is synonymous with Athens, one of world's most historically significant cities, sophisticatedly called: an open - air museum and a lively modern Metropolis in Europe. Attica offers a huge variety of choices for visitors except its historical monum ents, like the Athenian Riviera: a strip of land stretching down the Attica peninsula, as far as Sounion, full of beach bars, marinas, luxury resorts and restaurants of any type, them all overlooking the sea. Although the largest part is dominated by the urban space of Athens it also has less-populated towns, especially close to peninsula's edges, like the famous Cape Sounion with the ancient temple of Poseidon. Archaeological sites, mountainous villages, the well-known port of Piraeus, the cosmopolitan islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses, washed by Saronic Gulf, can also be found in Attica Region and become an additional reason for visiting this exceptional part of Greece.
