Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
One of the world’s oldest cities, Athens has a history dating back over 3,400 years. It’s not only the capital of Greece but it’s the largest city too, with almost 5 million inhabitants.
It’s the city where democracy was born and, despite its recent troubles, remains a fascinating place to visit, whether you’re there on business or on holiday. Situated in the region of Attica, the city is surrounded by mountains and extends as far as the Port of Piraeus, so you can reach the city via air or sea.
Whether you arrive at ‘Eleftherios Venizelos’ Athens International Airport, which is one of the busiest in Europe, or you come ashore from one of the many cruise ships or ferries at Piraeus, Rent A Bus will have a fully air-conditioned hire coach or bus to greet your party and transport you into the capital in comfort.
It’s the best way to travel in Athens. We take care of all the driving, while you simply sit back and relax. We’re one of the best bus and coach rental companies in Athens, so why not speak to us now about your travel needs?
Many of the famous landmarks of this glorious city are easily accessible on foot from the city centre, so if you’re staying in one of the centre’s hotels, you’re unlikely to need transport.
However, if you’ve opted to stay a little out of town, perhaps by the sea at Glyfada, Voula or Vouliagmeni, then you may want to book coach hire with Rent A Bus to transport you and your companions to the city’s main attractions.
Probably the number one place to visit on everyone’s list is the Acropolis. Perched atop the Holy Rock of Acropolis, the Parthenon has stood for centuries looking down over the city. The Acropolis is the most important ancient site in the Western World and has been nominated as one of the 7 wonders of the modern world. Don’t forget to visit the Acropolis museum at the foot of the hill to see treasures from the Ancient World and the remains of an ancient Athenian neighbourhood.
The Greek Parliament building is situated in Syntagma Square, the location of many of the recent protests. It’s also the place to see the changing of the guard outside the parliament building where traditionally dressed evzones (guards) parade outside the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier dressed in their presidential uniforms of short kilts and shoes adorned with pom-poms.
No visit to Athens would be complete without a walk around pretty flower festooned Plaka, Thission and Psyri, the old neighbourhoods of the city. Here you’ll find old mansions squeezed between modern department stores and upmarket restaurants next to traditional tavernas to give you a real taste of Greek life.
Famed for its boisterous nightlife, Athens’ bouzoukia are well worth a visit to listen to some traditional Greek songs and enjoy a spot of Greek dancing. However, there are also many modern bars and nightclubs if you prefer something a little more contemporary, and the selection of restaurants in the capital is second to none.
You’ll find plenty of chic bars and cafés between Syntagma and Monastiraki, and in the up and coming area of Metaxourgiou. And, after all that partying, wouldn’t it be great to be met by your very own hire coach in Athens to whisk you back to your hotel, house or apartment? Rent A Bus can make that happen.
Offering a fleet of modern coaches, minibuses and limousines, Rent A Bus Athens can accommodate groups of all sizes whether you want Athens airport transfers, bus shuttles, sightseeing tours in Athens, or you simply want to know that you’re going to get home safely after a good night out.
