In the midst of economic crisis, Athens has faced some tough times. Though as we’d expect from the city responsible for democracy, theatre, and Western civilisation, Athens refuses to be defeated. Named after the Greek goddess of wisdom and courage, Athena, the Athens of today keeps its cultural ties through the stunning marble architecture, iconic monuments and world-class museums. While mighty old-world architecture sees a rich history survive on each and every street corner, more modern offerings including hip hotels, artsy-industrial neighbourhoods and a killer foodie scene reveal an edgier side to Greece’s capital. Old or new, graceful or grungy, you’ll find it all and more in the great city of Athens.
