General Information
The ancient birthplace of Western civilisation

If any city can claim to be the cradle of Western civilisation, it is Athens. It has 3,000 years of recorded history, and in the 4th and 5th centuries BC enjoyed a cultural flourishing that changed the world. One can still walk through the theatre where plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides were first performed, and see where Plato taught.

It was in that golden age that the Parthenon was built – a temple to the city’s goddess, Athena. It takes pride of place on the rocky promontory known as the Acropolis. Thanks to a new 2.5 mile promenade that runs past the Acropolis, one can move easily between the major archaeological sites.
