Athens is the historical capital of Europe and the birthplace of democracy, arts, science, and philosophy of Western civilisation.

This city has been home to some of the world’s most renowned thinkers, such as Plato, Socrates, Pericles, Euripides, Sophocles, and Aeschylus. With a recorded history spanning around 3,400 years and inhabited since the 11th millennium B.C.E., Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world. Today, as you stand in the shadow of the Parthenon, you can witness the contemporary urban scenery of this sprawling city, which reflects its exciting history, diverse modern personality, and excellent infrastructure and facilities.
