Athens Guide

Athens is the city where Olympian gods meld with modern denizens in a mash up of art, nightlife, mouth watering food and ancient temples. This beloved birthplace of democracy and western civilization has undergone a massive evolution in the past decade, offering travellers a myriad of adventures from ancient archaeology to a thriving art scene, dance clubs and bars that stay open way beyond your mother’s prescribed bedtime.

No trip to Athens would be complete without a visit to Acropolis. You should also consider checking out the New Acropolis Museum too. This state of the art museum was built on top of an ancient village and the glass floor allows you to peer down on the fascinating remains. Psiri which, according to many, is the true heart of Athens is a hard working neighbourhood that transforms into a buzzing nightlife of bars and clubs when the sun sets, and has always been home to cutting edge music, culture and unique style.
