Known as the ‘city of ruins’, Athens is the largest city and the capital of Greece. The city is the birthplace of many intellectual and artistic ideas as well as the oldest civilization. The city also boasts of the birth of western civilization. With its contemporary boutique shops and tall buildings, Athens is the first European city when approached from the middle-east.

The ruins in the city are where its glorified history is reflected. Every nook and corner of the city emancipates its historical magnificence which comes out blended perfectly with the city`s modernistic approach. One can witness the striking combination of cultures and architectures from different eras that complement each other. From breathtaking structures to various activities that can be done for free, here is our list of places and activities that you can do when in Athens:


Epitomizing the glory of Ancient Greece, Parthenon is much more than just a historical monument. Parthenon, which means ‘virgin`s apartment’ is a monument dedicated to Athena Parthenon –a goddess of the power and the prestige of the city. The structure is built with white Pentelic marble and the construction was completed in 15 years. Designed by Iktinos and Kallicrates, it is the only largest Doric temple ever created.


Crowned by Parthenon, the Acropolis is an ancient site with great significance in the Western world. Inhabited first in the Neolithic times from 4000-3000 BC, Acropolis stands overlooking Athens and there is no nook or corner in the city from where the structure is not visible. Made from Pentelic marble, the architecture showcases its best colors during the day and as the sun goes down it exudes its brilliant craftsmanship.

Temple of Olympian Zeus

The Temple of Olympian Zeus is known as the largest temple in Greece. Started constructing in 515 BC by order of Peisistratos, this gigantic ancient complex took seven centuries to complete. The work was stopped but later resumed in 175 BC but was stopped again for 10 years when the Roman architect passed away. The temple was finally completed in 132 BC under the emperor Hadrian. Only 15 out of 104 huge columns remain of the temple which is dedicated to Zeus Olympios.

Ancient Agora

Trace back the origination of the cultural developments of Athens from Agora! Once a market place and civic center, the area was a common hub, where people gathered to meet new people and share their ideas about various subjects. Overlooking the Ancient Agora, the Temple of Hephaistos was built in the 5th century BC. The temple is excellently preserved and still consists of 34 Doric columns that support a partially intact roof.

Syntagma Square

A major tourist attraction that attracts every tourist to Athens like a magnet is the Syntagma Square. The most interesting part is the change of guards by the Evzones in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The place sees most of the important events held in Greece and various trolleys, trams and buses stop here.

Athens has much more to offer more than we can mention here. So don’t just browse about the places but visit them personally. You can also book packages and flight tickets under your budget from our website. So book now!
