Most of the iconic monuments that still exist today in Athens were built 400 years BC and throughout the centuries, it has gone through numerous radical changes. That’s why many people find it rather a chaotic place. But even so, it manages to combine the new and the old perfectly. Book your tickets to Athens with Blue Air and take a walk in the city of Greek goddess, Athena.
The main attraction is the Acropolis, a rocky hill which consists of three temples that will leave you breathless: The Parthenon (also the most well-known monument), the temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheum. Along with the medieval Daphni monastery, these two tourist attractions are also included in UNESCO World Heritage.
Although Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world, there’s one thing that remained unchanged throughout time: the quality of Greek food. Mouth-watering souvlakis, delicious fresh seafood and incredibly tasty moussakka, you’ll want to eat until you pop. Go to a rooftop restaurant to enjoy your meal next to a great cocktail and with the lit-up Acropolis in the background.
Fashion lovers will definitely add Athens to their favourite list once they get there. The Kolonaki neighbourhood and Ermu Street are full of brand-name stores and boutiques.
