Wine tourism in Attika
Attica is the general area of Athens and, in terms of volume, the most significant area of Greece. Attica is extremely important for Greek wine, not only for vine-growing reasons, but also for being the location of Athens, Greece’s capital.
Among the many sites in Athens and Piraeus, visitors should not miss the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum (one of the best museums in the world), the ancient Agora and the Stoa of Attalos Museum, Keramikos and its museum, the National Archaeological Museum, the Byzantine and Christian Museum, the Benaki Museum, the National Gallery, Panathenaic Stadium (Kallimarmaro) and the Piraeus Archaeological Museum. In Eastern Attica, where most of the vineyards are located and many PGI wines are produced, the main sights are the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, the Lavrio Archaeological Museum, the ancient site of Vravronas and its museum, the Marathon Archaeological Museum, the Amphiareion of Oropos and the Zygomalas museum in Avlonas. In Western Attica, where many PGI Gerania wines are produced, the most important sights are the archaeological site of Elefsina and its museum, the archaeological sites of Eleftheron and Aegosthena and the Megara Archaeological Museum.
