Athens is the capital of Greece, the largest city in the country and one of the oldest in the world, with a long history, dating from 5th century BC.
The city is rife with historical landmarks and in the same time it is a modern metropolis. Athens is a beautiful representation of how contemporary life and architectures can perfectly intertwine with remnants of ancient culture. Most of the historical areas are organized for pedestrians only, making the major archaeological sites connected by 3 kilometer long pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe).
The beauty of Athens can be enjoyed from above as well. The geomorphology of the city enables visitors to admire breathtaking panoramic views of the city and its landmarks. And the most famous sight of Athens, the Acropolis, may be seen almost from every part of the city due to its central position on a hill top.
Being a modern metropolis, Athens offers great nightlife, bars and restaurants with picturesque views and atmosphere, a variety of shopping malls and bazaars. For those of you who need some sun and sea, the Athens Riviera offers wonderful organized beaches.
