One of the world’s oldest cities, with a history of at least 3,400 years, Athens is considered to have been the birthplace of Western civilisation and democracy due to its cultural and political achievements.
The magnificent Acropolis, on which stands the Parthenon temple, rises above the city. Around this is a stunning pedestrian walkway linking the city’s ancient monuments, such as marble temples, Byzantine churches and ancient theatres. And it’s our Local Specialists who’ll enrich your discovery of these already fascinating sites, using their own insider knowledge and personal anecdotes. Marvel at the Agora, the Royal Palace, Hadrian’s Arch and the Acropolis Museum.
