It won’t take long in the ancient city of Athens to understand why it has captivated so many before you. With a history as long and convoluted as the Acropolis is high, discover the myths and legends in their natural habitat, and enjoy the seamless mix of ancient and modern as you travel the city.
Syntagma Square in the centre of Athens is an excellent starting point. Despite its moniker as one of the world’s oldest cities, the seat of modern day Greece is well worth exploration too. Enterprising locals offer a plethora of experiences suitable for all tastes, or you can hire a car to discover further afield. Head to the postcard perfect coastal town of Vouliagmeni, perhaps catching a glimpse of the stunning Greek Islands en route. Delphi should certainly be on your list – once the centre of the ancient world, it offers a plethora of attractions and a vibrant gastronomic scene.
