Giorgos Kaminis: Athens makes a comeback and ranks among top European destinations

Athens has made a complete comeback as a top tourism destination in Europe, with arrivals more than doubling this year, said mayor Giorgos Kaminis.

“From the bleak situation in 2012, when the city, via an unfavourable climate of economic recession and with a negative reputation internationally, fell to a historic low point in terms of visitor arrivals, we reached the point today where Athens ranks among the top destinations in Europe,” said the mayor, adding that the more than 5.5 million visitors are expected to visit the Greek capital in 2018.
