The bustling Greek capital has one of the great masterpieces of the ancient world, the Parthenon Temple on the Acropolis hill, and is acclaimed for its world-class shopping, thriving tavernas, outstanding museums, and excellent public transport infrastructure.

The Acropolis

Undoubtedly Athens’ most recognisable landmark, the Acropolis is an enormous Golden Age complex that was built in the 5th century BC and is now on the coveted UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Since the 1970s, the site has been carefully restored thanks to funding provided by the The Acropolis Restoration Project, and contains more than twenty archaeological sites, from the Temple of Athena Nike to the open-air Theatre of Dionysus.
