Up to around the 6 BC Attica boasting an independent community living, which was about to change under Cleisthenes's reforms - Attica was divided into municipalities or "demes" and power was transferred to Athenian politicians.
Attica has an impressive coastline of more than 100 kilometers - and what most visitors don't realise is that the coastline lies less than 10 miles south of the city center (and less than 10 minutes away from the apartment you just booked)
