While Greece in itself is a beautiful country, there is no place quite like the capital city Athens. This city has been popular and has been bringing in visitors for over three centuries. Not only is Athens super rich in cultural history but it is also the home to one of the world’s most famous buildings, the Parthenon.
This building represents the time period that was consider the golden age of city planning for Athens. It is nearly impossible for any other building in the world to compete with the unique architecture of the Parthenon and as a result most have stopped trying.
Another interesting fact about Athens, Greece is that it is actually the home of more than 50% of the entire population of Greece. This must speak to its beauty and over all attractiveness. Besides being one of the world’s most popular tourist cities, Athens also has a lot to offer in the way of flea markets, antique shops and a number of other really cool Greek experiences.
Last but certainly not least is the fact that Athens is known for having the best Greek food you could ever find no matter how many places you looked. If for no other reason than to eat the world’s best Gyro, Athens is an excellent place to take a city break – book at citybreaks.org today!.
