Athens – city of past and present

Steeped in an astonishing depth of history, Athens – the gem of the region of Attica – is your personal time machine to ancient Greece. Weave through the maze-like streets of Plaka as the sun-dappled Acropolis looms overhead. Stop by the iconic Parthenon, and let’s not forget the lesser-known, yet captivating ancient Agora. Here’s a fun fact: Athens boasts more theatrical stages than any other city in the world – so catch a performance, maybe even a Greek tragedy if you’re feeling a bit dramatic. In a city that’s as much a living museum as a vibrant metropolis, it’s the fusion of past and present that makes Athens unforgettable.
