Greece’s capital city is full of ancient history buffs treasure. Sat beautiful and high over the city sits the Acropolis, dating back to 447 BC. If you feel overwhelmed by history and time, the views of the city alone are worth the climb up the hill. Exit the site and amble through Plaka the perfect place to get stuck in to the cities coffee culture – which you will need if you have been at the Acropolis for sunrise!
There are few places where the past comes to life in quite the same way as in Athens. Often referred to as the cradle of Western civilisation, it’s a city bursting at the seams with culture, intrigue and beauty.
It’s not just a place for history buffs – it’s one of the liveliest European capitals. A thriving café culture ensures you’re not left waning in between all the sightseeing and you’ll never have to venture far to enjoy the vibrant nightlife.
We are just leaving the villa now to go to the hotel and I wanted to let you know that we have had the best week ever. I’m nearly crying leaving Angelina and Kimberly. We have never met kinder people who became part of our family for the week. They looked after us so so well and the kids adored them. Can we book again for next year? I can be happier leaving knowing that I will meet them again.
