About Athens

Where ancient meets modern

Athens, the capital of Greece, has been around for over 2,500 years - once a dominating force in the Mediterranean, the ancient sites that are testament to its power and wealth litter the city.

The city has an overwhelming number of cultural and historical monuments, from the famous Parthenon to the Panathenaic Stadium, theatres to the ancient Agora, or marketplace where philosophers such as Aristotle used to walk and teach. But Athens is so much more than that - the foodie scene is fantastic, and a great option for the gastronomically-minded is to learn how to cook Greek food, or simply take a walking tour around the city, snacking as you go!

Athen is also a perfect jumping off point to visit other local sights, from an day cruise to the nearby islands of Hydra, Poros and Aegina, to further afield such as Delphi or the Peloponnese.
