An eclectic blend of ancient and modern, Athens is fascinating, exciting and unique. Cultural sites and museums, scintillating shops and pavement cafes dotted amidst avenues lined with orange trees is what the city centre is all about. A short drive takes you to the scenic Attica coastline of the ‘Athenian Riviera’. There are many museums and antiquities to behold, and stunning monuments, some from the 4th Century BC, including the magnificent Parthenon which stands regally over the city on the famous Acropolis. Athens enjoys a buzzing nightlife, with much to be found at the Plaka district - a sleepy village by day becoming a hive of activity by night! Options for dining out are plentiful, with a mix of good restaurants and traditional tavernas throughout the city.
