Home to Athens, the national capital, the historic region of Attica remained a collection of smaller kingdoms for a good portion of its long history. Today the region ranks as one of Greece's top travel destinations, drawing visitors with its archaeological sites that include a string of ancient temples, fortresses, tombs, theaters, columns, and city walls. Attica also includes several islands, ideal for both long-stay vacations and brief day trips from Athens. Be sure to add the northern section of Attica to your itinerary if you wish to escape the cities in favor of forested mountains and gently rolling hills.
