Information about Athens

As one of the oldest recorded cities in history, Athens is known as the cradle of western civilization. It is the capital city of Greece and its largest metropolis, as well as being one of the world’s richest cities. Athens is near the Saronic Gulf, and is built on a series of hills in the Attica Plain surrounded by tall mountains.

This ancient city is a world center for archeological research, hosting some of the world’s most important museums and artifact collections. Many centuries-old Greco-Roman architectural wonders still stand mostly intact and draw visitors from across the globe. The famous Parthenon is one of the most photographed and most visited attractions anywhere. Other notable landmarks include the Acropolis of Athens and the Daphni Monastery, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Dramatic theater has been historically important to Athens, which hosts the annual Athens Festival attracting many world class performance artists.
