Flights Athens

A short walk through Western civilisation

Over 2500 years ago, the city of Athens experienced a golden age. Under the leadership of Pericles, the Parthenon was completed – a temple to the city’s patron goddess, Athena; plays by Aeschylus and Aristophanes were performed in the Theatre of Dionysus; public votes were held close to the Acropolis and Socrates engaged in philosophical debate.

A 2.5 mile walkway, shaded by trees, makes it possible to walk easily between some of the major archaeological sites. The path is also a favourite promenade for locals taking their Sunday stroll. Stop along the way at a taverna or café. For the best views of the Acropolis, head to Philopappos Hill.
