Things to do in Athens
Go scuba diving in the Aegean Sea
The Aegean Sea’s mild teal waters make it popular for scuba diving. Just outside Athens, the Aegean Dive Centre (tel: +30 229 1053461; www.aquadiversclub.gr) arranges diving trips to nearby sites along the coast, including to sea caves and shipwrecks. If you have no previous experience, they also offer instructions for beginners and PADI courses.
