Fire up Google Earth and there's your answer. Tick the boxes for 'Borders and labels'.

Even this website gives you the answer....Think about it....why does the Athens forum come after the Attika(i) forum....which come after the Greece forum....

There's a megaton of internet resources which weren't there when I was young...

I did not see #2 as sarcastic. It drew the parallel relationship between LA/California and Athens/Attica.

Attiki (or Attica) is the name of the region-prefecture where Athens is located. However theres also an inner city area in Athens called Attiki. Theres also a metro station there with that name. So if you are looking at an appartment rental thats located in Attiki, probably they refer to the inner city area and not the broader region.

#7: I was not looking for an apartment. I was simply trying to get my bearing geographically. In another post, I was told that my wife and I would find to fit our interest, among others, in Athens and Attiki. Numerous websites draw me to a broader area called Attiki and some draw me to Attiki close to Athens. Your explaination is now clear to me. This is much appreciated. Thank you
