Athens, the cradle of western civilization. Famed for such gifts to the world as democracy, theater, geometry, philosophy modern medicine and, of course, the Olympic games. But we’re sure you knew all this already. What you may not have known is that in recent years Athens has become one of the top destinations in Europe for revelers looking to let their hair down and have a good time.
The once ancient streets are now home to some of the trendiest urban chic bars and cafes to be found anywhere in the world. Down many of its side streets, quietly tucked away off the beaten track, you can find a myriad of buzzing little bars where the locals like to spend their evenings dancing till dawn. Down a few beers and join in with them before soaking it all up with the original authentic Greek Gyros.
You’ll be well looked after in Athens with Zeus, the god of travelers, looking down from his temple atop of the acropolis. Just one of many great monuments dotted throughout the city.
Why not head down to the aptly name Bikini Beach to check out the local talent? Go jet skiing, speed boating or one of many other activities out on the crystal clear waters of the Med. Take a day trip to one of several islands located close to the city or just chill out and soak up the sun before a big night out on the town.
Athens is the ideal get away destination that will leave you wanting to come back for more.
