Best places to visit in Greece

  • Athens: A historical hub with impressive buildings and monuments that date back over two-thousand years, you’ll find yourself immersed within this vibrant city. The pièce de résistance of the city is the Acropolis, however Athens has many other fabulous areas for tourists to visit too, such as Monastriraki.

  • Chania: Located on the Greek island of Crete, Chania’s charm lures visitors year after year. The narrow, quaint streets and little restaurants are akin to a film set, whilst the impressive lighthouse helps Chania shine brighter than other cities.

When we arrived to the island I didn't have a car reservation I called this car place after trying 2 others that were closed due to off season and to my luck the lady working said she would come pick us up (we were 10 minutes away) and drove us to get the car. Got us on our way quick it was the BEST experience with renting a car we have had! Thank you so so much!!!

After sleeping only 3 hours and taking 3 flights to get to Mykonos, I realized after landing that I will probably need a car to get around. Nicola M. greeted me with a great smile at the counter and found me an automatic car on the lot that was available. He provided excellent customer service that is “rare” in Europe, as we all know. Thank you, Sixt rent a car Mykonos Airport for all your help today!

Stratos was an excellent host. As it was winter and there were little crowds, he gave us an excellent car that we enjoyed for our stay. He was well-informed about Paros; even suggesting the best roads to take back to our an apartment if we wanted a scenic drive. At the end of our booking, he even offered us Christmas cookies which was a sweet touch as we approached the year-end. Good team - fetched us and send us back promptly.

Loved their service, and much thanks!

The experience at Sixt was excellent: the employees were courteous and professional; The vehicle was of a high standard (Audi 3), suitable for mountain driving as I requested.

On the way back we had a flat tire and were worried about missing the flight: the care of the staff at the branch and the activation of roadside assistance were impeccable and allowed us to get to the flight on time. All the best and thanks to the professional and lovely staff members.

Sixt rarely fails and I am glad I rented from them in Santorini as well. The car I wanted first was not available, but when I said that I specifically wanted that car and nothing else, staff worked their magic and a little later I drove off in the car I had booked. I guess I was lucky, but still they did the effort of looking for it! Happy customer - will rent again!
