Description

Be inspired by glorious Athens! The capital city of Greece, where many philosophers were born, was the heart of Ancient Greece, a powerful civilisation and Empire.

Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views from Mount Lycabettus, 300 metres above sea level before being tantalized by the neoclassical buildings of the ‘architectural trilogy’ consisting of the National library, Athens University and the Academy of Athens.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the changing of the Royal Guards at Constitution Syntagma Square is also intriguing!

Lively Monastiraki known for iconic landmarks such as the ruins of Hadrian’s library, the Stoa of Attalos and the ancient Agora together with its flea market is of significant interest.

Be charmed by the serene Athens Riviera and enchanted by the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, one of the major monuments of the Golden Age!
