With so much to see, do and visit you will not have a moment to spare during your wonderful stay in this gorgeous city.

The must see ancient sites of the Parthenon, the Acropolis, the Roman, Byzantium and Ottoman monuments stand proudly above and in the city itself. The museums are filled with ancient artefacts from lost civilisations that show us the beauty of their cultures. Visiting them you will step back to a world that time has preserved for modern man to marvel and wonder at.

Amidst the throbbing vibrant city you will parks that offer peace and tranquillity where peacocks wander in beautiful lush gardens, their calls haunting the air as the sun rises over the waking city. The marvellous Attica Zoological Park is home to exotic birds, lizards, snakes and wild cats to name but a few of the beautiful creatures that are found here. Privately run this marvellous zoo is worth visiting and enjoying.

Athens is a thrilling city with restaurants and bars, cafes and tavernas that offer some of the best Greek food for visitors to sample and enjoy. The ouzeries are especially good where food is served traditionally. These ouzo cafeneons offer delicious, traditional dishes that will simply make your mouth water. There are some wonderful seafood restaurants on the coast where you can eat fresh fish caught that day and with bottles of ouzo or Greek wine to compliment your meals, you are sure to enjoy every moment in an idyllic setting.

The nightlife in Athens is vibrant, with bars and clubs where you can dance the night away in an electric atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. Greeks love to dance and they adore singing, they are true artists when it comes to both and gladly share their love of this with every visitor who comes to their shores.

Whether you are just passing through Athens on your way to the islands or have come to sample a different way of life, this metropolis that dates back to ancient times will be one of the places you will want to return to again and again. Athens will bring a smile to your face, a warm feeling to your heart and will give you an experience of a lifetime.
