HIRING A CAR IN ATHENS
Athens is truly an amazing city. It is a mixture of ancient and modern buildings, combined with flavors of the past and visitors of the present.
Athens is the capital of Greece with population over 5.5M. It is a big city! Not just that, but it also has so many things to see, from Acropolis and Herodion Theater to the temples of Sounion all the way to Lycabettus mountain and other lovely areas that are km apart from each other.
Don't get me wrong, you can always get a taxi to drive you around, but considering that the fare from the airport to your hotel alone is 35€ - 55€ depending on the hour, why not rent a car and drive wherever you want with less money?
It just makes sense :)
