Holiday to Athens and you’ll soon discover there’s so much more to the Greek capital than impressive ancient monuments. Built around the Acropolis with its temple of Parthenon dedicated to the goddess Athena, history and heritage are found round every corner of the city – but explore beyond and you’ll find intoxicating nightlife, endless al fresco dining and a contemporary art scene. And when you find yourself tiring of city life, travel to the Athenian Riviera – a stretch of coastline south of the city exuding an island-like atmosphere. Here you’ll find marinas dotted with yachts, beautiful beaches for swimming and waterfront cafes and restaurants. Spend summer evenings watching open air cinema beside the sea or taking in the magnificent sunset from the Temple of Poseidon.
