Priority actions include establishing Athens and Attica as ideal short break destinations with the introduction of a wide array of options and tourism products, marketing the unknown aspects of life in and around Attica through unique holiday spots such as the Saronic isles, tapping into social media tools, working together with the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) as well as with key tourism players for the participation in tourism related events.
