City of Light

There are few destinations that had a greater impact and influenced history than Athens. During its height of power, it stood as a beacon of knowledge and learning, housing some of the greatest minds in the world in the most powerful city-state in Greece.

Today, you can see glimpses of its greatness, as you stand on the Acropolis, the Parthenon gleaming at your back, gazing out at a sprawling city with beautiful public buildings, shops and houses that still inspire. This was a civilization that spawned the Olympic Games, incredible written works, new schools of thought and showed the world the power of the human mind.
