    All about Athens tourism

    Athens is the capital of Greece and one of the oldest cities in the Western world. Since Athens was one of the most powerful and advanced city-states of ancient Greece, it’s no surprise that modern Athens tourism revolves around the city’s rich historical treasures, ruins, and museums. The city’s sunny weather makes holidays to Athens popular year round, though it is most crowded during the high-season in the summer months.

    The first stop when you visit Athens will most likely be the Acropolis, a stunning set of ruins perched atop a hill offering amazing views of the city. The most famous sight is, of course, the Parthenon, a stunning temple that's over 2500 years old. Other must-see ruins during your holidays to Athens include the Temple of Hephaestus, the incredible Caryatid Porch, and the Odeon.

    While the city’s ruins are the main reason for many travelers’ holidays in Athens, there are plenty of more modern sights to pique your interest. People-watch at the cafes of Syntagma Square or peruse the fresh fruit vendors at Monastiraki Square. Don’t miss the chance for a once-in-a-lifetime visit to the National Archaeological Museum.

    Many people travel to Athens en route to other parts of the country, namely the stunning Greek Islands. If you’re headed for a cruise to the islands, you’ll want to find a hotel near Piraeus, the historic port area of the city. To get the most of your Athens trip, have a look below at the tips from fellow travelers about the best attractions, restaurants, and hotels.
