Tons of History

Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world, and over the years, the city has worked very hard to preserve as much of the ruins and history as it can, which makes it a perfect place to spend a vacation.

After hosting the Summer Olympics in 2004, the city was able to really undergo a number of large renovation projects, which has helped it to increase infrastructure and transportation options all around Athens proper.

In order to get to Athens, most visitors will arrive via the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, about twenty miles outside Athens, that serves as a big hub for many European cities. Athens is also a port city and many visitors arrive via ferry from Italy, the Greek Islands and Turkey.

Must See Museums and Ruins

Any visitor who comes to Athens has to schedule a lot of time to see some of the many world class museums that the city has to offer. Some of the first stops should be to head over to the New Acropolis Museum, National Archaeological Museum, and the Byzantine Museum.

Visitors must also take in some of the ruins that are scattered all over Athens. The Acropolis has to be one of the first places to stop by. Climb to the top and take in panoramic views of the city beyond learning about the history of the modern world. On top of the Acropolis houses some sites atop it including the Parthenon and the Temple of Athena.

Outdoor Walking Areas

Athens is also home to some really great wide open walking areas that meander between the ruins. One of the best and most well preserved is the Temple of Hephaestus, others would also include Filopappos Hill, which has some of the best views in Athens, and the Odeum of Herodes Atticus, a historic theater.

Some of the other sites to be sure to see are going to include the Panathenaic Stadium, the site of the modern Olympics, the Agora, once the main marketplace of Athens and the Plaka one of the most interesting neighborhoods in Athens.

In and around Athens

Athens:

Greece’s Capital city is Athens. Athens on the one hand is a very historic city with numerous sights and museums, but on the other hand modern and pulsating. When visiting Athens on a short trip there are a few venues you should note down. It certainly is a must to visit the acropolis. But you should also make sure to see the Dyonisos theatre, to name only a few sights.

Due to the international airport, Athens is an important traffic junction. With regards to the infrastructure you can say that Athens has been built in a highly modern way. With Athens’ metro and its sophisticatedly worked-out suburban trains as well as the motorway interchange, it has built up a traffic system that meets the requirements of the constantly growing traffic. Athens is the venue of many tourists, but there are also many foreigners who come to Athens to live and work there.

Athens offers a lot of hotels and guesthouses. The sufficient number and diversity of the hotels makes it easy to find a suitable accommodation in Athens. The choice of nice bars, cafés and restaurants is gigantic as well. You may always stop and stay at a café to make a break during your city tour. And you can eat very well and comfortable in one of the restaurants, which offer domestic as well as international cuisine.

The main economic factors playing a role in Athens are navigation and, of course, tourism. The pharmaceutical industry has gained a foothold in Athens again, while other branches of industries wander off.

Athens is characterised by a dry and humid climate. In the summer the temperature rarely sinks in the night time.

The total population is split into the municipal Athens with 720,979 inhabitants, the prefecture of Athens with 2,664,776 inhabitants and the metropolitan area with 3,799,134 inhabitants. Athens has the postal code 100.
