Athens Travel Maps
Informing yourself before hand about your travel destination is never a bad thing when going on vacation, especially when there are language barriers. Maps from online sources are not bad to get the basic facts, however they aren't always going to be available depending on where you are. It probably may seem like a small thing, but it is so important to actually have a travel map of the region in your hands, when you need it.
When to buy Travel Maps
Don`t forget toorder your map well in advance of your trip. Not only does it give you some time to review it, but you don't want to have your travel map missing in action while you on your way to your holiday destination. General tourist maps aren't going to change very much over short periods of time, so be sure to get yours earlier than needed, rather than risk not having one.

Athens is the capital of Greece, and also the capital of the Attica region of Greece. In addition to being a modern city, Athens is also famous for being a powerful city-state and a very important center of learning in ancient times. It is named after its patron goddess, Athena.
In Ancient Greek Athens was called Athinai, and in the 19th century this name was formally re-adopted as the city's name. Since the official abandonment of Katharevousa Greek in the 1970s, however, the popular form Athina has become the city's official name.
