Athens - Greece

Athens the capital of Greece and one of the most famous cities in the world, named after the goddess Athena. Ancient Athens was a powerful city-state, considered to have been the cradle of Western civilization and a renowned center of learning, home to Plato and Aristotle.

Modern Athens is a bustling cosmopolitan metropolis, home to over 3 million people. It is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. May-June and September-October are possibly the best month to visit to avoid the heat in July-August.

Syntagma square in the heart of the city is a great place to start touring the many historic sites including the Acropolis which is the one you cannot miss and is within walking distance. The Metro is best for getting around to avoid the traffic.

A visit to the islands is also a must. Take the metro from Syntagma to the port of Pireaus and high speed ferry to Mykonos or Santorini.

Must See:

The Acropolis
The most famous landmark in Athens, this large hill lies in the center of the city and contains a cluster of ancient ruins.

National Archaeological Museum
This is also a must see. Houses a large collection of Greek and Egyptian artifacts.

Greek Islands
Mykonos and Santorini are my favourites.
