Culture & Art / Central Part


Few cities can lay claim to a heritage as impressive as Athens. The past is ever-present amid the hustle of the modern capital. You can't miss the iconic Acropolis, but layers of history peel away wherever you turn. Byzantine churches are wedged between apartments and neoclassical houses become avant-garde galleries. With a coastline to rival the Riviera and nightlife as wild as Miami, Athens is so much more than ruins.
