Surrounded by a lining of stunning seas and mountains, Athens is filled with gems just waiting to be discovered.

Athens is a city with a glorious, fascinating history that has been worshipped by gods and people, a city full of beauty and fantasy. A walk around the city centre will lead you to Plaka, Thission with the old, well-preserved, picturesque neighborhoods with traditional shops and taverns; or maybe to Kolonaki the modern, luxurious side with the newly built department stores and fancy restaurants for a more classy experience. Head up South, not far, and find yourself to the Attica beaches for a swim or simply to enjoy the sea breeze and the fresh air soaking up the Greek sun.
