Athens: a metropolis in its true sense showcases its classical beauty

Athens: a metropolis in its true sense showcases its classical beautyThe centre of it all, Greece’s vibrant capital welcomes you with open arms from the top of the Acropolis, down ancient walls and to the urban sprawl below.

Athens, the city where democracy was born, captures your eyesight and imagination with its timeless classical beauty. Visit the Acropolis and its spectacular museum and you’re bound to shiver with emotions you thought a piece of marble could never evoke! Stroll along the narrow streets of Plaka and let your senses get overwhelmed by the smell of honeysuckle and orange blossom.

Walk by the ancient city’s monuments and stop off at Thission or Monastiraki for a well earned drink. Haggle with local traders and taste traditional cuisine. As shadows of ancient worlds fade attend a concert at Herodion or simply gaze at the stars under the illuminated monuments. For the culture buffs and romantics amongst you a movie in an open air cinema transports you to an era quickly fading away but very much loved.

Explore what the modern city has to offer in its many museums and arts venues. Learn about Modern Greek art at the National Museum of Contemporary Art and visit the National Gallery or attend a performance at Athens Concert Hall.

Take a break from all that culture and indulge in a shopping experience like no other. From the book shops along Akadimias Street and Korai Arcade to the exquisite Attica shopping centre and shopping malls in the leafy Northern suburbs or designer discount outlets by the airport you truly are spoilt for choice.

If partying is on the agenda, then you’ve come to the right place. Start your evening with a traditional meal and continue with a drink or two in one of the city’s many bars and cafes. Experience the buzz of the city’s nightlife and paint the town red visiting bouzoukia. You’ll appreciate what Greek nights are all about! Ready to join us for the trip of your life?
