Like no other city, Athens can uniquely lay claim to being the capital of not just one country but all of Europe, for it was here that civilisation and democracy were born. Over the centuries, myriad conquerors left their mark on the architecture, culture and traditions, creating a remarkable capital city that boasts some of the world’s most famous historical landmarks and a modern, vibrant heart centred on the largest pedestrian zone in Europe.
A great city is one whose image dwells in the memory of man... and Athens embodies that most pre-eminent quality of the antique world, Art!
     
Benjamin Disraeli
Dominating the city is the jewel in the classical crown – the surviving hill-top temple to Athena, the iconic Parthenon. This ruined, yet elegant, building stands proudly on the Acropolis compelling visitors from afar to make their way up the sacred hill to stroll amongst its ancient columns and to stand in awe before some of the most important masterpieces in world architecture. Enjoy, too, the far-reaching views over the city and down to Piraeus on the coast.
