Short term rentals in Athens
Athens is the capital of Greece and has a long historical significance dating back to the Roman and Ancient Greek empires. The city is the gateway to a myriad of islands dotted around the Aegean Sea and a popular place for tourists looking for short term holiday rentals. Athens’ most famous landmark is the Acropolis that sits on one of the city’s eight large hills. Underneath the Acropolis hill the vibrant old town district of Plaka spreads out in a maze of narrow streets that are full of restaurants, bars and night spots. The city is full of historical sights that include the Agora built by Roman Emperors; The Temple of Zeus, built for the purpose of worship; Hadrian's Arch that originally linked the Roman quarters with Athens; and the stunning Dionysos Theatre, the world's oldest theatre. For a deeper understanding of the country’s dynamic history the National Historical Museum is a good place to start. When the heat and bustle of the city gets too much head down to the port and within hours you could be in the tranquillity of Greek islands such as Santorini and Ios.
Rent a room short term
Accommodation in the city has greatly improved since the 2004 Olympics and there is now a wide range of hotels on offer. The city can be very noisy so keep off the main streets is you want a peaceful night. Popular areas to stay are Plaka and the districts of Koukaki and Makrygianni that lie to the south of the Acropolis. However, if a hostel stay or expensive hotel is not the type of accommodation you are looking for there is an alternative choice for short term rentals. You could find short term rentals direct from private local owners and soak up all their knowledge and insight of the region. And on the website Wimdu this is exactly what you can do!
