Athens, the capital of Greece, is said to be the oldest city in the world. It has long since been recognised as a major centre in culture, economy and politics and is widely renowned as a source of art and philosophy. This is still evident in the city, which is characterised by ancient monuments, temples and landmarks showing the long tradition and history of Athens, that has literally gone from “Acropolis to Metropolis”.
Today, traffic-filled roads hide cobbled alleys with delightful tavern and cafes, ancient buildings house modern art galleries and an innocuous doorway could lead to a fantastic restaurant serving moussaka and ouzo. Join us on one of our escorted tours to Greece with flights from UK and see what Athens can offer you.
