What is our cry? What is our passion? What is our prayer? Simple. As an innovative tour operator, EcoAthens wants to change your view of Athens. The city is no longer just a pit stop to the Greek islands. Athens is transforming itself into one of Europe’s hottest “city breaks” destinations. That’s because it has the essential features today’s sophisticated traveler expects in a getaway vacation.
Ecotourism means small scale travel that preserves nature by minimizing human impact, in addition to supporting the cultural integrity of the local community. For the visiting tourist, ecotourism is a way to connect intimately with the land and people to create a fun filled and meaningful holiday.Read more
Our wise ancient ancestors chose the location of the city of Athens because of its ideal climate, its strategic location between three continents and especially because of its enviable setting right on the sea in an agricultural valley surrounded by three verdant mountains.
A millennia of continuous occupation by ancient invaders and modern developers has left a legacy of disregard for creating urban green spaces and protecting traditional culture. Ecotourism is a sound strategy to protect Athens’ environmental and cultural landscape.
A long list of historically significant events occurring in Athens and the Attika region, at war and at peace, has made this city a veritable sacred monument. We call on citizens of the world, regardless of your origins, to come pay homage and respect to the Cradle of Western Civilization.
Located within the Attika peninsula, Athens is one of the few European capital cities lying directly on the sea, making it a defining feature of Athenian life, especially since the Aegean Sea has the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean. The city’s port, Piraeus, is the largest passenger port in Europe.
