City breaks & Short breaks in Athens
If you have yet to discover the incredible city of Athens, a world of fascinating history dating back 3400 years awaits you. Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities and you will see its history reflected in the city’s incredible architecture, impressive monuments and wonderful museums. City breaks to Athens should definitely include visiting the National Archaeological Museum. There you will find 5000 year-old artefacts. The Byzantine and Christian Museum, The Benaki, The Museum of Cycladic Art and The Numismatic are other examples of museums to be visited on Athens city breaks. In addition to its incredible history, Athens is also quite naturally beautiful. Four large mountains (Mount Aegaleo, Mount Parnitha, Mount Penteli and Mount Hymettus) surround the city and to the southwest is the Saronic Gulf. Athens enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate with pleasant temperatures throughout the year. The thrilling city has always attracted great numbers of tourists but in recent years Athens has greatly improved its infrastructure and amenities. The 2004 Olympic Games had much to do with the recent improvements and now the city is even more prepared for visitors like you.
