The 'birth place of modern civilisation', Athens is a vast open-air museum with ancient monuments and ruins found throughout the city.
The most visible and dramatic is the Acropolis, the sacred rock that has stood majestically as the symbol of Athens for centuries with the Parthenon dominating the skyline.
During the summer months the huge Roman open-air marble theatre at the foot of the Acropolis presents various musical, dance and theatrical performances.
The traffic free 'archaeological promenade' links the ancient sites helping visitors to easily navigate the city's busy streets.
Surrounding the Acropolis is the old city (Plaka), where narrow, maze like streets are lined with fine restaurants, bustling markets and lively tavernas.
