There's a whole lot to learn about Agia Paraskevi, but there's no need to feel overwhelmed. Before you get behind the wheel of your rental car, let's start with some of the basics.
Agia Paraskevi lies just 6 miles northeast of the middle of Athens, the country's energetic capital.
One of the greatest things about embarking on a road trip is that you get to know a bunch of new people. So while you're vacationing in Agia Paraskevi, why not venture out of town in your rental car and meet a few of the other 664,000 individuals who call Athens their home?
If your trip to Agia Paraskevi is all organized but your itinerary is a bit on the empty side, let us give you a helping hand.
Make the short journey out of the heart of the neighborhood and spend some time discovering American College of Greece and Iaso General Hospital. After you've checked them off your list, steer that car in the direction of Papagou Garden Theatre.
Make sure you visit Marousi and Khalandrion while you're here. Give yourself enough time to explore — there's loads to keep you occupied. Travel 2 miles from Agia Paraskevi and you'll be in Marousi. Alternatively, Khalandrion is 2 miles away.
There's nothing quite like dropping the car window and feeling the salty sea air in your hair while you're cruising along the seaside. Bring along some yummy food and spend a few hours soaking up the sun at one of the gorgeous beaches near Agia Paraskevi. Well-loved options include:
Constantly traveling for business-related reasons? Convention centers are most likely a second home to you. With easy access to hotels, restaurants and cafés, you can be sure your trip will be a success if you're on your way to any of these places:
A road trip is calling your name, and Agia Paraskevi is an awesome base for your Nea Penteli adventure. Located 4 miles from downtown, the first thing you'll need is the key to one of our superb rental vehicles. A full-size car will take you around Nea Penteli in absolute comfort — or perhaps you want to venture off the beaten track and discover hidden spots with a powerful four-wheel drive. For zipping around the city, we'd recommend a compact ride. They might not be as spacious, but they'll be wonderful at gliding into those tight parking spaces.
Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes your car choice important. If you're about to head off on an epic road trip around Agia Paraskevi, a safe and sturdy SUV could be the ideal solution. If you're hoping for the best possible deal and plan on doing a lot of city driving, a versatile compact is a smart pick. All you need to do is work out what'll suit you best, throw your bags in the trunk, and start clocking up those miles.
