Athens

The Greek capital is a pulsating and modern metropolis and its most  recognizable icon is visible from afar. It is the epitome of ancient Greece; the Acropolis. The city, named after the goddess of wisdom, blends an ancient civilisation with a progressive city. Around its rocky base is the neighbourhood known as the Plaka with its narrow lanes and modest houses. In the evenings the sidewalk tavernas serve souvlaki and wine drawn from barrels, a wonderful atmosphere in this fascinating capital.
