Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. A large part of the town’s historic centre has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites, reconstructing – to a large degree – the ancient landscape. This creates a lively urban bustle, but at the end of the day, Athenians build their own villages in the city, especially in open-air restaurants and bars where they linger for hours.
Things to do in Athens:
The Temple of Olympian Zeus, Areios Pago, The Iridanos River, as well as treasures in the National Archaeological Museum. Also Township Tour to Athens, a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone tour that will take you to the historic centre of town.
