An Ancient Capital

With equal parts of grunge and grace, Athens is a potent mix of ancient history and modern hip. The cultural and social life of Athens plays out amid, around and in landmarks that are centuries, if not millennia, old. The magnificent Acropolis is visible from almost every part of the city and is the hub around which Athens still revolves. The city crackles with energy in art shows and even on the walls of derelict buildings, becoming one of Europe’s most noted spots for street art.
