About Athens

Embodying the legacy of ancient Greece within a modernist hub

A visit to this bustling Greek metropolis is a must-see to explore the sophisticated modern Athenian city. In a city already renowned for its vibrant and rich cultural history Athens has undergone a startling transformation since its urban renewal for the 2004 Olympic Games, and is now recognised as one of the safest and liveliest cities in Europe. In addition to a vibrant street life and stylish, boutique fashion culture, Athens has banished all cars from its historic centre to create a stunning pedestrian promenade; where visitors can stroll in the moonlight at leisure to enjoy the ancient architecture and majesty of this awe-inspiring cultural hotspot.
