Athens, Greece

Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating back to the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century BC, the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Today, with equal measures of grunge and grace, Athens is a heady mix of history and edginess. Cultural and social life plays out amid, around ancient landmarks. The magnificent Acropolis, visible from almost every part of the city, reminds Greeks daily of their cultural heritage and of their capital’s many transformations.

A large part of the town’s historic center has been converted into a 3-kilometer pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites, reconstructing – to a large degree – the ancient landscape.
