“Let there be light! Said Liberty, And like the sunrise from the sea, Athens arose!”
– Percy Bysshe Shelley
What we love about Athens
When I visited Athens, I understood why it was the cradle of Greek society and the birthplace of democracy, among its many other famous names. Walking through the streets you can feel all of its different souls - from the historic old town, to luxurious mansions from the middle and renaissance ages, to modern government buildings, luxurious department stores, and fancy restaurants. Everything coexists, like the many cultures and civilizations here have done before us.
It was a dream come true when I finally had the chance to visit Athens. I have loved ancient history since I was a kid, and the moment I saw the Akropolis in the distance, I got teary-eyed. It is an unbelievably cool experience to see this incredible human achievement in person. Athens is definitely a place to put on your bucket list. Additionally, the city full of great restaurants and bars with fantastic local food. Athens is a must.
Things to do in Athens
Heritage and culture are just a few of Athens’ many highlights. The city of Athens has also developed into a fascinating modern metropolis brimming with young talent, who used the recent financial crisis as a stepping stone to give Athens a new direction, sense of meaning, and life. This rise in creativity paved a way to a plethora of tours being offered to visitors to experience the many faces of Athens and its surroundings.
We believe that no visit to Athens is complete without embarking on a culinary journey through the bustling streets, colorful markets, and ancient sites. Love at first bite is guaranteed. To discover another side of Athens, we recommend spending a day driving along the spectacular coast of the Athenian Riviera, dotted with Blue Flag awarded beaches, multimillion-dollar homes, and luxury marinas.
Athens enjoys a prime location for day trips to nearby islands, the ancient wine region of Nemea, or the world-famous archaeological site of Delphi -- which the ancient Greeks believed to be the center of the world. In Athens you will be spoilt for choice, as your customized itinerary will show.
