Snapshot Guide

The ancient city of Athens is home to some of the most famous history on earth and most of the world is in some way influenced by Athenian culture.

Come and bask in the Mediterranean lifestyle; the food, the weather and an overall slower pace, perfect for those wanting a break from the bustle of everyday life.

When you visit Athens makes sure to book a visit to the citadel of the old age, the Athenian Acropolis, in particular - but certainly not limited to - the Patheon. The citadel is actually a collection of grand buildings each with its own story to tell and what you can’t find there, you’ll see in the carefully maintained museum.

Athens is bursting with stories of the past and the plethora of relics still standing (like the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, Areopagus and Temple of Olympian Zeus) have echoed through time. It’s a humbling experience visiting the key sites.

For those who love beauty and nature, the National Gardens shouldn’t be missed. It’s been cultivated since 1838 and is a very mature and visually stunning 38 acre slice of bliss. It’s a wonderful place right in the heart of the capital.

One of the best placed cities, with heritage to match any nation on earth, great family vibes, amazing cuisines and glorious sunshine, what’s there to think about!
