Take a flight with SWISS and land in the beautiful capital of Greece. You can never underestimate the historical importance of Athens. Very few cities come close. The historical sights left from ancient Greeks are staggering even today.
In the 4th and 5th centuries BC it enjoyed a cultural flourishing that changed the world, and when you visit it today, you can see exactly where Plato taught, or you can stand in the theater where plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides were first performed. There are other sides to Athens to be discovered as well. The traditional taverns with a few tables on the street make for a memorable evening. Fresh seafood is a natural choice, along with a glass of retsina. Also, pay a visit to the Panagia Kapnikarea - Greek Orthodox Church, almost a thousand years old.
