Athens Travel Guide

When Athens won the honour of being the only city to host the Summer Olympics twice in 2004, the entire city had major renovations and upgrades done. From the airport to the highways and metro system, today Athens is more efficient and cosmopolitan than ever before.

Modern Athens is an international city which offers the traveler unlimited possibilities for excursions, sightseeing, art, culture, dining and night life.

Athens has literally thousands of traditional ‘tavernas’ -- to dine and dessert at. One thing you can count on here is that you’ll always find delicious, inexpensive food in the city and its suburbs, along with hundreds of restaurants of every style and nationality. Athens is also very much alive at night, boasting some of Europe’s hottest nightclubs. Enjoy a film or a play in Athenian style open-air amphitheatres and cinemas.

The remarkable thing about Athens is that it still retains its aura of ancient glory which will become evident when you take an evening stroll through the city. It is pure magic especially to those ready, willing, and able to understand and appreciate its unalterable beauty. This is the perfect city to start your Greek getaway before you venture out onto the Cyclades islands on the glorious Aegean Sea.
