Regional authorities also presented the islands of the Saronic Gulf, ideally located for island hopping, with Agistri, Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses just brief boat trips from Piraeus.
Attica Region authorities are confident that 2017 will be an important year as even more visitors will have a chance to get to know the diverse options available.
“We should not only focus on the number of arrivals. Our aim is to increase of revenue efficiency in relation to arrivals. Moreover, our target should be the rational management of destination ‘Attica’ depending on visitors’ and residents’ needs,” said Eleni Dimopoulou, executive regional councillor for tourism promotion. Dimopoulou also referred to the region’s digital campaigns and networks as well as tourism campaign funding.
“There is a lot to be amended in order to make our tourism product more attractive. We need to promptly implement the Attica Region campaign in order to take advantage of the enormous impetus of the tourism market,” Dimopoulou added.
