Athens Travel Guide

Considered the birthplace of Western civilization, Athens is the capital of Greece, and with its 3500 years of history, one of the oldest cities in Europe.

Classical Athens brought us the Arts, the Academy, democracy and philosophy. Nowadays, it’s a huge metropolis where over 3 million people live and 4 to 5 millions will travel to in 2017.


1 day in Athens

What should you do if you only have one day in Athens ? It shouldn’t come as a surprise, one day is not a lot of time and there is plenty to see & do in and around Athens. In fact, I would allow at least 3 days to see the city. But if you happen to be in Athens for just a day, follow this itinerary to get a good feel of the city and make sure you saw what you just couldn’t miss !
