An unforgettable journey through history.
Athens, Greece, the birthplace of democracy and cradle of Western civilization, is one of the world’s oldest cities offering a setting rich in art, and philosophy; offering travelers the opportunity to walk in footsteps of Alexander the Great or trek through the ancient ruins where Plato and Aristotle once walked.
As you walk through Hadrian’s Arch, you’ll experience the dichotomy that is Athens: a city comprised of historic landmarks like the Temple of Zeus, ancient Theatre of Dionysos, the Acropolis, the Parthenon, and a safe, modern city offering a thriving arts scene, bustling sidewalk cafés and restaurants, as well as a perfect Mediterranean climate allowing life to be enjoyed outdoors.
“The unique combination of glorious history with modern, urban innovation, the coexistence of great culture with astonishing natural beauty, modern means of transportation such as the cutting edge modern metro, the vibrant rhythm of life, the wide choice of opportunities for shopping, dining and night life and of course the warmth of the Athenians people feature Athens as the ideal all year round city break destination.”
