Athens Tourist Attractions

Athens or Athéna, is the capital of the Hellenic Republic of Greece. It is one of the oldest cities in the world with recorded history that dates back over 3,000 years.

The city, which has contributed so much to Western culture ever since ancient times, is now the spiritual and financial center of Greece. Athens was the birthplace of many of the most influential philosophers such as Socrates, Pericles and Sophocles. As well as being the seat of the head of the Greek Orthodox Church it houses a university and other educational establishments, together with museums of world renown.


The iconic Acropolis stands high above the city center on a limestone crag, and is a constant reminder of the glory of ancient Athens. It is among the most culturally significant sites in the world.
