Athens Greece

Athens, the capital of Greece, is surrounded by three mountains and the Saronic Gulf. The center of Athens offers something for everyone. A walk through Plaka, Monastiraki, Thissio and Psyri is full of neoclassical buildings and mansions and plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars. Kolonaki and Lycabettus Hill are the areas to find luxury shopping and dining. Syntagma Square is the center of the city, and all of these varied neighborhoods radiate from it. The coastal towns of Athens – Faliro, Glyfada and Voula are easily accessed by train. There are many important archaeological attractions in Athens: the Acropolis, the Odeion of Herodes, the ancient market (Agora), and the Kalmarmaro Stadium (used in the original Olympic Games). Athens also has countless museums: the Acropolis Museum, the Byzantine Museum, the Benaki Museum and the Museum of Cycladic Art to name just a few. Don't miss the changing of the guards on the streets surrounding the National Gardens. An incredible nightlife is available every night of the week – from bars and clubs downtown to seaside clubs in the southern suburbs.
