The green areas of Athens, the groves and parks are important areas of recreation and relaxation for the people of the city. Among them, stand out the National Garden, Pedion tou Areos and the hills which with their vegetation are true areas of fresh air in the capital, for recreation and enjoying nature. Leaving the centre of Athens we encounter larger parks, we discover the mountains filled with pine trees that determine the peninsula but also important habitats that host rare wild animals and are Mediterranean landscapes of rare natural beauty and make you forget that you are very close to the bustling city.
