If you are a great lover of history, a visit to the ancient city of Athens will make your holiday worthwhile. The city today may be just as congested as any other modern city but its historical importance makes it a crowd favourite among travellers. To easily get around the city, you might want to arrange for cheap car hire in Athens.
Take your car rental for a drive to the Acropolis, the most famous tourist attraction and landmark in the city. It is centrally located and is elevated above modern Athens so it wouldn't be hard to miss. The Acropolis boasts of excellent views of the entire city and the remains of the Ancient Theatre of Dionysus. Within the Acropolis, you will find architectural masterpieces from the pre-Christian era including the Parthenon and the Propylaia.
From the Acropolis, drive to the National Archaeological Museum where you will find an extensive collection of gold relics from the ancient towns of Mycenae and interesting Minoan frescoes from Santorini. The Goulandris Museum of Cycladic and Ancient Greek Art is also a must-see.
While you're in Athens, make sure to sample some of the city's best Greek specialties such as the moussaka. You will find a number of traditional restaurants and food outlets to satisfy your discerning palate. The marketplace is the perfect place to go for retail therapy as it features a wide assortment of souvenirs and locally made items.
From there, take your cheap car hire in Athens for day trips outside the city. A good two-hour drive to the outskirts will take you to the Peleponnese peninsula where you will find the ancient sites of Corinth, Mycenae and Epidaurus.

If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
