Awe-Inspiring Athens

Athens: the capital of Greece boasts over 3,500 years of recorded history and is home to not one, but two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the iconic Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. The city is bursting with Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman monuments which tell the story of a long and fascinating past. The National Archeological Museum is a much-loved highlight of Athens, featuring the world's largest collection of ancient Greek artefacts. If you want to take a break from the sightseeing, you can browse the array of shops in the narrow streets of Plaka or sample some delicious Mediterranean cuisine in one of the city's many restaurants.
