The far-reaching scheme will focus on boosting the city and region’s brand name as well as offering attractive package deals and exclusive discounts at a variety of tourist service providers (hotels, airline tickets) and cultural/archaeological sites.

A working group with representatives from the tourism and culture ministries, the Attica Region, the City of Athens and other parties has been set up to supervise the implementation of the plan.
