Suffused with well-kept secrets, the vibrant Greek capital is a mixture of the best Greece has to offer, from food and culture to historical landmarks and stunning natural beauty. Time and again, the Greek capital continues to transform throughout the past 7,000 years of its continuous history. One of the world's oldest cities, Athens is a remarkable montage of historical periods, cultures, and juxtaposing styles. Relics of 2,500-year-old civic buildings still stand next to Byzantine chapels and Ottoman-era townhouses. In contrast, monumental Neoclassical edifices built in the 19th century stand side by side with apartment buildings from the Art Deco, Bauhaus, and Modernist eras. Overlooking the Aegean Sea is a charming string of the Athens Riviera coastal neighborhoods, a serene escape from the Greek capital's hustle and bustle. On the tip of the coastline, at Cape Sounion is the Temple of Poseidon, one of the most significant monuments of Ancient Greece. A visit to the Temple is an extraordinary experience that will undeniably fill you with cosmic energy and a timeless sense of nature's wonders. With one foot in the past and one foot in the future, access to both the electricity of city life and a beachside resort's tranquility, Athens cannot be defined in simple terms. One must experience it for themselves.
