Why Athens?

Transport yourself to the very heart of ancient Athens, the historical capital of Europe, where iconic monuments juxtapose with the hubbub of a modern city at work and play. Climb the sacred rock of the Acropolis. Time could almost stand still as you take in the magnificence of the Parthenon, one of the most important age-old monuments in the western world. Explore the museum and pause a while for the unmissable vista of the city and its iconic ruins.

Nestling at the foothill of the Acropolis, you’ll discover the city’s oldest district of Plaka with its picturesque neoclassical houses and mainly pedestrian streets. Explore the eclectic display of Greek and Oriental art at the Benaki Museum and on your way back to the centre, perhaps you’ll catch the Changing of the Guard in Constitution Square.

Navigate your way through the bustling alleyways of Varvakios Agora, the unmissably authentic fish, meat and vegetable market that’s the true belly of Athens. After working up an appetite, perhaps finish with a stop at a taverna to savour authentic Greek souvlaki and raise a toast to good health with a glass of ouzo – yamas! Just a taste of this vibrant city will leave you aching to experience it over and over again.
