Athens

Info

Provided by Greek National Tourism Organisation

Athens is the historical capital of Europe. Athens has a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century BC (the "Golden Age of Pericles") - the culmination of Athens' long fascinating history - the city's values and civilisation acquired a universal significance. Political thought, theatre, the arts, philosophy, science, architecture, among other forms of intellectual thought, reached an epic zenith, in a period of intellectual consummation unique in world history.

Athens was the womb of western civilisation. A host of Greek words and ideas, such as democracy, harmony, music, mathematics, art, gastronomy, architecture, logic, eros, euphoria, among others, enriched a multitude of languages, and inspired civilisations.

Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments-a rare historical palimpsest.

In 1834 Athens became the capital of the modern Greek state. The choice was based on the symbolic significance of Athens' classical history. In two centuries since Athens has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm.

Athens offers visitors a unique experience. A "journey" in its 6,000-year history, including the chance to see renowned monuments and masterpieces of art of the antiquity and the Middle Ages, and the architectural inheritance of the 19th and 20th centuries. You get an uplifting feeling of snugness in the brilliant light of the attic sky, surveying the charming landscape in the environs of the city (the indented coastline, beaches and mountains), and enjoying the modern infrastructure of the city and unique verve of the Athenians.

Year-round visitors are fascinated by the attractions of Athens.
