Athens

The birthplace of democracy and so much more

Ancient and new is a constant mix across the capital of Greece, where historical sites and monuments blend with modern trends and new beginnings from the crisis-striken Athenians who are bound to come out as winners. Having transformed through the wave of the Olympic Games in 2004, Athens went through a rough patch as of 2010 and has recently started finding its new identity with an emphasis on food, art and sports.

Although the city attracts 5 million visitors a year, tourism has been growing strong and with a beautiful array of Greek Islands just hours away from its ports, it is slowly getting picked up as the perfect city-break destination. Explore the old and new landmarks, the best restaurants and the up and coming neighbourhoods with our unique travel guide!
