Athens is the capital of Greece and is considered one of the oldest cities in the world with a recorded history of more than 5000 years, portraying a beautiful blend of the past with the present. Athens is a wonderful mixture of ancient Greece, Byzantium and other cultures of the world, filled with architectural monuments everywhere in the city. The 2,500 year-old Parthenon, the Ancient Agora and the countless museums are part of the archaeological treasures that brace the city’s reputation as the center of culture.
Acropolis, Plaka, Gazi
The entire Athens city centre is a vibrant statement of high urban culture and authentic Greek entertainment. Neoclassical buildings with cutting edge galleries, the National Garden and the timeless changing of the guards in front of the Parliament building craft the city’s charming ambiance. Wander through Monastiraki and picturesque Plaka, Psirri, Gazi, Sintagma square and Kolonaki, the centers of a vibrant city life.
Kifissia, Athenian Riviera, Cape Sounion
The city’s south and north suburbs showcase their own charm and history, going back thousands of years. In the north, explore the cosmopolitan area of Kifissia and the upper-class area of Filothei. In the south, at the Athenian Riviera you will find the idyllic Vouliagmeni area with its historical Vouliagmeni lake full of mysteries and urban legends, trendy Glyfada seafront and the picturesque Paleo Faliro, ideal for romantic beach walks during sunset.
The coastal road of the Athenian Riviera ends at Cape Sounion and the impressive Temple of Poseidon, the last piece of the ancient Athenians’ homeland every time they sailed into the Aegean. The sunsets there are an unforgettable experience, since the sky is filled with all shades of mauve and pink, making the sea glow.
