Athens is arguably world’s oldest city, with a recorded history of around 3400 years. Steeped in history, this city is often regarded as the cradle of western civilisation. Unsurprisingly, the extensive coastline around Athens and Attica region is home to numerous excellent shipwrecks.
Diving laws in Greece have recently been relaxed. previously, only a fraction of such sites were allowed to be explored owing to concerns for preservation of Greece’s invaluable archaeological sites and extensive wrecks in the area. During those days, many divers headed for Paros, Crete and Santorinin, despite landing in Athens.
However, the changed laws have opened some really exciting sites around Athens. Here the deep rocky formations add immense beauty to the underwater landscape.
