The Cradle of Western Civilization, the city where democracy was born and one of the world`s oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning around 3,400 years. Classical Athens was a centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato`s Academy and Aristotle`s Lyceum. The most important civilization of the ancient world flourished in Athens and relives through some of the world`s most formidable edifices. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. A walk around the famous historic triangle (Plaka, Thission, Psyri) the old neighborhoods, reveal the coexistence of different eras; old mansions, well-preserved ones and other worn down by time; luxurious department stores and small intimate shops, fancy restaurants and traditional taverns.
