Whoever visits the Greek capital takes a pilgrimage to the fountain of European culture. The city’s most famous building is the Acropolis, which is garlanded by the golden pillars of the Parthenon. The statues, reliefs and frieses of the Acropolis Museum and the Archeological Museum of Athens show us the classical beauty ideal and the perfect sense of proportion.
The Agora tells us about the life of ancient Athens, while the Plaka, with its narrow roads, introduces us to a vivid, Eastern bazaar. In front of the parliament, traditionally dressed guards make up a guard of honor. The city can be best seen from the Lykavittos Mountain and the sunset is the most beautiful.
From Athens we can take a trip to the port of Pireus, to the monument of the battle at Marathon, to the ruins of the sacred area of Eleusis, to the Korinthos canal, and to the sunny holiday resorts of the Attican Riviera.
