Use the drop-down menu below to explore Athens.
Athens is a vibrant city enjoying sun-drenched summers and mild winters. Here you can discover anything and everything from ancient museums and trendy roof top bars to hipster coffee joints and chic boutiques.
Discover the ancient Acopolis which towers dramatically over the city boasting impressive 360 degree views. From the new Acropolis Museum to the Ancient Agora, the memories of Ancient Greece are present in every corner of Athens. Below The Acropolis Hills sits the sleepy village of Anafiotika with its whitewashed houses and labyrinth of narrow alleyways. The Old Town of Plaka oozes historical architecture, cobbled streets, sun-drenched piazzas and restaurants serving mouth-watering Greek cuisine too good to be missed. Hours can be spent relaxing and watching the world pass by. For those keen to enjoy a spot of beach-time then a visit to the southern coastline of the city is a must with its upmarket marinas and sandy beach that are blissfully empty off-season.
