Athens, Greece!

Athens

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.

Hellenic Parliament

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.

Temple of Olympian Zeus

One of the great temples of ancient Greece can be found at the centre of Athens. The temple, dedicated to the god Zeus, was completed in the 2nd century AD, but the foundations were built in 515 BC. The church was entirely constructed using the famous Pentelic marble. Today the museum is open to visitors, and it really worth a visit …

Zappeion

This is one of the most impressive buildings in Athens. You will find it into the National Garden. Its construction was financed by Evangelos Zappas. The official opening of the mansion were in 1888. Today is one of the finest neoclassical buildings in Athens, while the region is one of the most famous areas of the Capital for a walk …

Paleo Faliro

One of the most beautiful areas of the southwest of Athens. The place is historic, as mentioned by Herodotus. Though very close to Athens, the beach is a popular destination for swimming not only for Athenians but also for many visitors. Do not forget upon your visit to enjoy a drink overlooking the sun …

Cape Sounion

The promontory that dominates in the south side of Attica, Cape Sounion, stands from the ancient years impressive and steep , looking over the sea .The ancient Greeks built there the temple of Poseidon, god of the sea and the view of the temple on the rock , is really shocking. At the first opportunity visit it!
