The city that shaped western civilisation, Athens is still one of the most attractive and interesting cities in the world. The capital of Greece has a fascinating history that spans almost as long as the history of mankind. It has one of the richest historical and cultural heritages in the world, with many landmarks dating back more than 2,000 years. Stay in our Athens hostels and visit the Acropolis, Athens most famous and visited landmark which contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance. Enjoy the historic centre, now one of the longest and most spectacular pedestrian promenades in Europe thanks to its ban on cars. Visit the Acropolis Museum, the Temple of Zeus or the National Archaeological Museum. Take an evening stroll, dine out until late and enjoy the city’s nightlife, or just sip a coffee and enjoy the vibrant and relaxed street life.
