The capital of Greece but also the largest of its’ cities, is an interesting destination throughout the year. Just the Acropolis and the Parthenon classify Athens as a world historical destination, but the visitor can also see much more in this city. We strongly recommend a walk towards Syntagma Square and Panepistimiou Street, a visit to the Filopappou and Lycabettus Hills and a walk in Plaka.
At Syntagma Square, perhaps the most beautiful square of Athens, the Greek Parliament is located, in a beautiful building which was founded in 1836. The Parliament moved there, in this beautiful neoclassical building, in 1929. This building has become an emblem not only for the city of Athens but also for the whole Greece, symbolizing freedom and democracy.
