Athens is a true hub of ancient civilization mixed with a modern, lively city. Here, you will find the Parthenon, pictured, the Acropolis, the Temple of Olympian Zeus and many more ancient Grecian sites. Other points of interest in the city include the Acropolis Museum, the Plaka area and the central plaza of Syntagma Square. Don’t let the ancient sites fool you, Athens has an excellent subway system and has easy access to the Mediterranean and Aegean seas.
