In efforts to attract French city break travelers, the Region of Attica presented its multidimensional thematic tourism products at a workshop during the recent IFTM Top Resa 2018 exhibition in Paris.

Titled, Attica: A multidimensional destination for short breaks”, the workshop focused of the area’s most significant destinations, which were presented through audiovisual material in the French language.

The event also included special presentations of the islands of Hydra and Poros, located in the Saronic Gulf.

“The French market is one of the most significant tourism markets for Attica… The region’s offerings meet the demands of French travelers, who are not interested in mass tourism; wish to get familiar with our cultural heritage, and appreciate high-end gastronomy and quality wines,” said executive regional councilor for tourism Eleni Dimopoulou.

“During the past two years we have hosted many French columnists through familiarization trips, organized to promote Attica,” she added.
