by World Nioki Go Travel
Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece, often referred to as the "cradle of civilisation" of the Western world and the birthplace of democracy. 

Its legacy from the classical era is evident in the city, with a large number of monuments and works of art, the most famous of which is the Parthenon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

No matter how much time you spend in Athens, it is never enough to discover all the delights the city has to offer. Known all over the world for its nightlife, Athens invites you to discover its bars, its nightclubs, its restaurants, with different styles but always in the best mood. Whatever time of the year you visit, don't forget to get information about the cultural activities in all areas, theatre, music and visual arts.
