Athens Travel Guide

Where the heroic goddess Athena keeps a careful vigil from top of the Acropolis you will find the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. Brimming with time-bitten remainders of antiquity, built around a number of hills as if to make the classical splendor better visible to the world, and enjoying a purely Mediterranean climate, Athens is a city you can't help falling in love with. And much as you may be thrown into a nostalgic mood as you stroll leisurely along the stunning pedestrian promenade, the night will bring you into the realization that Athenians are as good for a nighttime revelry as for a debate.
