Greece - moving around the country
If you want to control your journey by yourself, you can rent a car or a motorcycle. Roads in major cities are quite nice, but in the suburbs, the prime coat predominates. With a rented car, you can also travel by ferry. The cost of paying for such a transportation is extremely high; it’s at least 80 euros. Carrying a motorcycle will cost as much as a passenger ticket. It is also possible to rent a bicycle. However, not everyone will be able to move around a city, as the relief of Greece is very hilly. Moreover, there are no dedicated bike lanes. Although, car drivers are quite respectful of the two-wheeled members of the road traffic.
Nature and parks of Greece
Sounion National Park is located in the south of Attica. There are a lot of historical sights. Since ancient times, local people believed Cape Sounion and its surroundings to be a sacred place. According to legends, Athena and Poseidon lived on that cape. In the park, scientists discovered a three-meter statue that was created before our era. However, the most grandiose construction is the temple of the god of the sea, Poseidon, built in the 5th century BC. The temple is partially destroyed. Nine of the sixteen columns and the remains of the frieze with images of mythical heroes, have been preserved to these days.
