Athens

Athens, is the capital of Greece and the historical capital of Europe. Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities and known as the birthplace of democracy, arts, science and philosophy of western civilisation. Home of Plato, Socrates, Pericles, Euripides, Sophocles, Aeschylus. It’s recorded history spanning around 3.400 years and it is being inhabited since the 11th millennium B.C. E. Today, under the shadow of Parthenon, the contemporary urban scenery of the sprawling city reflects its exciting history, its multi- cultural modern personality as well as the infrastructure and facilities.

 

A visit to Athens is not certainly complete without a visit to the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum, the Ancient Agora, and the Roman Agora. A very convenient town for walking as all sights are in close distance to each other
