Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age.

A large part of the town´s historic center has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone, leading to the major archeological sites.

In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in two centuries since it has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm.



The Acropolis of Athens and its monuments are universal symbols of the classical spirit and civilization and form the greatest architectural and artistic complex bequeathed by Greek Antiquity to the world.

In the second half of the fifth century bc, Athens, following the victory against the Persians and the establishment of democracy, took a leading position amongst the other city-states of the ancient world.


Parthenon, temple that dominates the hill of the Acropolis at Athens. It was built in the mid-5th century BCE and dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena Parthenos (“Athena the Virgin”).

The temple is generally considered to be the culmination of the development of the Doric order, the simplest of the three Classical Greek architectural orders.

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure that hosted music events, located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens.

On the rocky wall of the Acropolis, behind the theater of Dionysus, runs an ancient road known as the peripatos, which flanks the southern and eastern sides of the Acropolis.


Since its opening in 2001, the multi-awarded Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” has continuously enriched its network with new carriers and destinations and is now officially ranked among the leading 25 airports in Europe.

Today, Athens airport is connected to 133 international destinations, including all major cities around the world at competitive prices.
