Athens

Athens

The birthplace of democracy, Athens is one of the world’s most historically significant cities. With a history spanning over 3 millennia, Athens has been nicknamed the cradle of civilisation for its major influence in politics and philosophy. These legacies are physically epitomised by its most significant landmark the Parthenon, one of the world’s most spectacular architectural sites. Despite its clear Classical heritage, Athens is one of Europe’s most thriving creative urban centres with an increasingly important artistic pedigree.
