Sightseeing in Athens

- Acropolis


The Acropolis is one of the most recognisable sites in the world. This sacred, white rock – stained a creamy colour with age – stands as a marker of where western civilisation was born. The ancient citadel contains a few buildings of great historic importance, including the Parthenon, which is a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, the patron deity of Athens. The Acropolis sits on a hill overlooking the heart of Athens, dominating the city skyline as it has done for more than 2000 years.


- Anafiotika


Beyond the tourist-dominated heart of Plaka you’ll find the Anafiotika quarter. This quiet, village-like neighborhood has narrow and bendy streets winding through residential areas full of cubed houses. Anafiotika is so quiet that often the only sign of other people is in the clothes lines with their hanging washing. These clothes and the splashes of colour on balconies and rooftops give a nice decoration to this picture-friendly part of Athens.
