As both the capital city of modern Greece and the heart of classical antiquity, Athens is a city of layers-the new build upon the old in a blend of changing history and culture. Ancient sites like the Acropolis and Agora shine through as prime examples of the past, while the bustling Plaka and other modern neighborhoods serve as hubs of present-day culture.
From tavernas and eateries overflowing with customers to shops filled with tapestries, knick-knacks, jewelry, and more, Athens is a center of activity.
