Attica is a historic region that encompasses the city of Athens, capital of Greece. The historic region was centered on the Attic peninsula. The modern region of Attica is more extensive than the historic region and now includes Cythera, the Saronic Islands, and the municipality of Troizinia on the Peloponnesian mainland. The history of Attica was linked tightly with that of Athens, which was one of the most influential cities in the ancient world.
