Activities

Greece, birthplace of the Olympic Games, is ideal for participating in a sport or taking part in events or games (sports tourism). In the recent past the country has frequently organized many large sports/athletic events (world championships, Pan-European games, significant international tournaments, etc), with the crowning event being the 2004 Olympic Games that were held in Athens.

These sports/athletic events contributed significantly to the construction of many modern large and small sports facilities, stadiums and training centers throughout the country, covering a wide range of sports, where today local residents and visitors to the region are able to exercise or train in their favorite sport: from athletics, soccer, volleyball and basketball to tennis and golf, sailing and surfboards.

Moreover, many hotels offer their guests special facilities for sports activities (basketball, volleyball, tennis, golf, sea-sports, etc). More details can be provided by the relevant hotel official (check the hotel guidebook).
