Timeless Athens Greece

Timeless Athens Greece

Athens is a large city, except when it comes to tourism. Most of the attractions typical tourists come to see—the Parthenon, Plaka, Ancient Agora, Temple of Zeus and Syntagma Square—are conveniently located in the city center. And now many of them are easily accessed via pedestrian-friendly streets and walkways.

Timeless Athens, Greece

The Acropolis, one of the most magnificent archaeological monuments in Europe, never fails to evoke feelings of grandeur. The ancient monuments were built in the 5th century B.C and are an enduring symbol of Greek culture and civilization and an impressive place to begin your Athens adventure. After the changing of the guards by the high-stepping Evzones in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, wander along Syntagma Square and its imposing government buildings and Parliament to the historic triangle of Monastiraki, Thission and Plaka.

Old mansions intermingle with modern department stores, family-owned shops that have been there for generations, stylish restaurants and traditional tavernas highlight and reflect the revolving eras in this ancient city. But Athens is much more than an ancient city.

Historic Greece

Today’s Athens is as much for the history buff, as for today’s fun and excitement seeking travelers. And thanks to the 2004 Summer Olympics, the city now delivers modern amenities that make Athens more convenient. It has an underground railway, buses, and trams to the southern seaside towns on the coast.

There are islands, beaches, and towns not far from the city center and after sunset, Athens rocks. Techno clubs with massive indoor and outdoor dance floors, concerts thump everything from blues, rock, and jazz to traditional Rembetika transforming the ancient monuments from old marble ruins to a vibrant backdrop for today’s generation of Greek “deities”. Athens is the cradle of democracy and the template for many of today’s civilizations. It offers the sense that you are not only seeing history but because you’re here, you’re now a part of it too.
