- What to see / Visit in

a journey through 6.000 years history

Athens is one of the most beautiful and charming capitals in Europe that fascinates its visitors all year long.
When visiting Athens, in essence you visit the historic capital of Europe as this city has been inhabited since the Neolithic Era.
Through the course of its long, fascinating history, it reached its zenith in the 5th century B.C. (the "Golden Age of Pericles"), a period when its values and its culture crossed the geographical borders of the city and spread worldwide.
Hence, Athens became the core of western civilization, while many Greek words and understandings such as democracy, harmony, music, mathematics, art, gastronomy, architecture, logic, Eros, euphoria and many more, enriched various languages and inspired different civilizations.

Due to its historic past Athens was declared the capital of the newly-established Greek state in 1834. In the two centuries that followed, it has developed to a modern metropolitan center of incomparable charm and great interest.
