/ Where Everything Begun! /
Athens has been constantly inhabited for the last 3.000 years. It was built among a ring formed by three mountains from one side and the Aegean Sea to the other. Through the ages its ideal geographical location along with its mild climate, attracted people to inhabit it. During its very long history it produced a brilliant civilization that left its permanent mark in the formation of modern society.
It’s hard to imagine that almost 2.500 years ago democracy was born in the foothills of the Acropolis creating one of the most important and unique heritage of the world’s civilization. And you may find it even harder to imagine that the ancient agora at that time had a parliament, a town hall, a courthouse, a prison, temples, restaurants, meeting rooms, schools, places to do business, practice law, organize festivals or sport events.
Take your time to visit the ancient agora, to walk on the Panathinaic road lined with statues, visit the completely renovated Stoa of Attallos with its museum that holds a remarkable collection, find the altar of Zeus and the statue of Hadrian and while you are doing so, always remember that you are actually standing in the birthplace of the concept of democracy and not only that: Philosophy, Physics, Mathematics, Astronomy, Theater, Sports, Medicine and almost every other cultural aspect of our society was either born or flourish and expand right were you will be standing, here in Athens.
Of course you should not leave the city without visiting the Acropolis and its splendid Temples of Parthenon and Erechtheion or pay a visit to one of the greatest museums in the world the new Museum of Acropolis inaugurated just a while back in 2009. But most importantly don’t forget that Athens, apart from its renowned legacy, has still a lot more to offer. With around 4 million inhabitants, today the city is a modern metropolis with countless museums, theaters, shops, restaurants and bars. It is a vibrant city that truly never sleeps but has also somehow kept a unique atmosphere balancing its heritage originating in the Greek, Roman and Byzantine times, with modern day living.
