Athens - Τhe city of the Gods, Τhe birthplace of democracy. As one of the world's oldest cities, its recorded history spans around 3,400 years. Athens was the host city of the first modern-day Olympic Games in 1896. The capital of Greece has always been a birthplace for civilization. It is hard to imagine what the world would be today without Greece's contribution to every field of human endeavour, from science to philosophy to politics.
The Saronic Gulf Islands are among the favourite resorts of the Athenians as the islands are located close to the capital. Each of the islands has its own character and colour. The varied landscape and ancient archaeological sites are a magnet for visitors.
