Travel Tips for visiting Athens

The cradle of Western civilisation and over 2500 years old,The Greek capital fascinates and remains an haven for history and archaeology enthusiasts, but it is also a mus-see for those who want to experience the pulsating core of contemporary Greece. However, the Greek city is too often a mere stopover between the airport and the Greek islands. Although it can be hard to get used to, Athens is a city of many faces and deserves more than a quick trip to the mythical Acropolis. Take the time to discover it and enjoy its unique pace of life.
Athens is home to ancient treasures and many historical monuments, but not only that! A visit to the Acropolis and its Parthenon will undoubtedly be the highlight of your stay, but don't miss out on its museum, which is essential for understanding the history of the site. Once you have visited the archaeological sites, stroll through the picturesque streets of the Pláka district or wander through the Monastiraki flea market. Ancient and modern, carefree and dynamic, Athens, the elusive capital city, will never cease to surprise you!

Plaka is one of the most ideal places to visit Athens, located under the Acropolis hill. This village is like a small island in the city, the most suitable place for tourists to explore and experience Greek culture. It is well known for its many sought-after attractions, with many food and coffee shops, including Agios Nikolaos Rangavas street, Amfitheater Spyrou Evangelatou...

The Parthenon was built around 446 BC, designed and built by two outstanding architects of ancient times. The Parthenon is dedicated to the goddess Athena, the hero goddess and protector of the arts. This is a famous building from ancient Greece that has survived to this day. This is considered a symbol of the end of ancient Greece and is one of the greatest cultural works in the world.

The Erechtheum is a Pentelic marble temple, located on the Acropolis hill, and is one of the legends of Greek architecture. The Erechtheion Temple has a bold Greek architecture but has an asymmetrical plan, consisting of 3 almost independent parts with 3 separate roofs, which is a strange phenomenon but makes it a masterpiece.
