Book a SWISS flight from Singapore to Athens and take the opportunity to view the remains of one of the most splendid cities of the ancient world.
Take a time machine and journey back two and a half millennia to experience life as it was in ancient times. The birthplace of democracy and the Olympic Games, Athens is an unforgettable experience that cannot be missed. The Acropolis provides physical evidence of the power and influence, which Athens once exerted.
Few cities around the world can admit to such a vast and meaningful history as Athens does. The Acropolis was a ceremonial site and a place of refuge in times of war. A short distance away lies the Agora, or meeting place, which holds clues to the everyday lives of the Athenians.
The National Archaeological Museum tells the story of Athens from prehistoric times and contains priceless classical works of art, unique to the great Greek Empire. Since it can get rather hot in summer, you can relax with the knowledge that you can escape the heat by visiting the National Garden of Athens, completed in 1840, a 15-hectare oasis.
Because of its importance both in ancient times and nowadays, Athens shows great cultural diversity. For example, you can visit the Byzantine and Christian Museum or the Jewish Museum of Greece. Athens, however, is also the modern capital of Greece with plenty of shops and restaurants, sure to satisfy any caprice; there are also fabulous beaches within a short distance of the city.
