The Beautiful City of Athens!

Athens is the capital of Greece the founding city of the Olympic Games and a city of culture, science and commerce.

Greece is a dream holiday destination — the beautiful islands, the history, the coffee and the food. Athens is the the main hub and starting point for most trips to Greece, so why not spend a couple of days discovering this historic city, before hitting the beach?

Athens colourful markets, its ancient monuments, the hustle and bustle of Syntagma and the city centre, its history wealth with the important influence on the development of Western Civilization!

It is named after the goddess of wisdom Athena and it encircles eight hills within its borders.
Acropolis is the most prominent of all and it stands as the ultimate architectural and artistic expression of the ancient Athenian Spirit. A growing city indeed engulfing its neighbouring suburbs all the way to Piraeus, and the gateway to the Greek islands.

    Me again, coming back to look at some of the many new tips that you have added to this page since March 2011. I never knew that authentic Greek coffee was prepared on hot sand.
