About Athens

Are you looking to visit one of the world’s most fascinating ancient metropolises? Greece is a nation where simplicity and the enjoyment of life are savored in every way; where ancient achievements collide with modern bustle. Athens – its pulsing capital – is filled with history, philosophy, and countless stories; influencing the way our world works even today.

Although Greece’s picturesque islands make for an amazing final destination, Athens is a stop not to be overlooked. Its unique neighborhoods have yielded chic boutiques, rich museums, an urban art scene, hip bars in hidden places, and a nightlife culture all its own.

Walk along the narrows streets of historic Plaka and discover quaint shops. Visit Monistiraki’s antique market and active square. Sit in the open-air bars, fusion restaurants, and tavernas to drink a traditional afternoon ouzo and taste the world-famous tzatziki. Journey to the Riviera to see beautiful beaches and sweeping vistas only a short drive from the historical center.

Discover why Cape Sounio was chosen as the ideal location of the temple of Poseidon, or why it is believed that the oracle of Delphi, while channeling the voice of Apollo, was intoxicated by fumes seeping from the earth.

Let Athens show you how, even today, it remains the beating heart of Greece.
