Welcome to the world’s ancient capital – welcome to Athens
Many historic cities struggle to move on, to innovate and redefine to find a steady place in today’s globalized world. Athens is definitely not one of these cities. The world’s ancient capital masters the split between cultural pride and the preservation of their Millennia-old heritage and a visionary and innovative orientation for the future like no other city of its size.
In Athens you will find tourists from all over the globe wander the ruins of the Acropolis in awe and disbelief that something so beautiful has been created by mankind, while at the same time, young Greeks are coming up with alternative restaurants and artsy bars in the part of the city known as Gazi.
A weekend will barely be enough to see half of what is offered within the city’s boundaries, let alone all the fantastic places neighbouring Athens such as the historic city of Marathon or some of the less touristic beaches in the Attiki region. Your flight from London to Athens has the potential to turn into an unforgettable experience, discovering the roots of democracy, while experiencing the spirit of Europe.
