Dominating the Attica region, Athens is the capital of Greece, one of the most magnificent and oldest cities in the world. It is rich in terms of culture, history and of course activities that any adrenaline hunter will be happy to do!

Once known as the birthplace of Democracy and the cradle of Western civilization, Athens is now a modern cosmopolitan city and the main economic, political and shipping centre in Greece. The city with its 4 million inhabitants is also recognized for its tourism and cultural influences and will more than likely cover all your needs and highest expectations.

You can find the heritages of the classical era all over the city, with the ancient monument of Parthenon reigning in the middle of the city. Around Parthenon, you will find the old area of Plaka with the colourful houses, the monuments, and of course the original tavernas! The new Acropolis museum is a must-see for its unique design and views all over the city. The National Archeological Museum with the world's largest collection of ancient Greek antiquities will leave you awed. 

Athens is connected with all the big cities around the globe through the Elefthérios-Vénizélos International  airport. You can also take a ferry to the islands from the biggest port of the country, Piraeus. It is only half an hour away from the city centre.

There is plenty of activities around the city of Athens and the wider area of Attiki. You can go skydiving, scuba diving, trekking and hiking in Parnassos Mountain and many more.
