Adventure Holidays to Athens

The ancient city of Athens is known as the birthplace of modern civilisation, at once the historical capital of Europe and the birthplace of democracy. Shrouded in myth and mystery, the ruined ancient world is all around you here. Risiging high above the city is the Acropolis, Pantheon and temples, where, according to legend, Athena and Poseidon held a contest to see who would possess the Acropolis. Poseidon created a salt water spring by throwing down his trident. Athena created an olive tree. Recently, the city has recently been infused with new life, and a vibrant art hub that has sprung up in the shadow of the Acropolis. Filled with galleries, cafes, hip shops and startups, Kerameikos-Metaxourgeio is well worth exploring if you get the chance.
