Kikilias: Athens and Attica Have Huge Potential for Sustainable Tourism Development

ATHENS – “Athens and Attica region have huge potential for sustainable tourism development, the connection with the culture, with our museums, but mainly the investments that are made in hotel units … the investment of Elliniko, the investment in Asteria Glyfada, all the investments that are made and the upgrades of our units, show that the interest is huge,” Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias said late on Monday in an interview with Action24.

“The major tour operators worldwide and in Europe are targeting Athens and Attica. The average stay in a hotel in Athens from 1.2 days has reached 2.6 days and that is why the Greek National Tourism Organisation, the Ministry of Tourism and the Greek government are promoting the city break, making an exclusive campaign and giving the opportunity to more travelers to come here in off season periods, not only during the peak months.”

Referring to 2022, Kikilias stated that Greece is taking credit for the great effort it has made in previous years.


ATHENS - A total of 44 parties, coalitions of parties and independent candidates, 6 fewer than in the May 21 elections total, have submitted their applications to the Supreme Court to run in the June 25 national elections.
