Athens is a city with glorious history and vivid present. It is a magical city worshipped by gods and people with plenty historical monuments, such as Acropolis, the ancient Theatre of Dionysos, Odeion of Herodes Atticus, Olymbion, Roman Market, Panathinaiko Stadium (also known as Kallimarmaro).

Athens is a city of different aspects. A walk around the famous historic triangle, Plaka, Thission and Psyrri, the old neighborhoods, reveal the coexistence of different eras.
It is worthwhile to take a stroll through the central streets with their art déco, art nouveau and antebellum buildings. Luxurious department stores and small intimate shops, fancy restaurants and traditional taverns, all have their place in this city. Visitors can also enjoy its nightlife. Athens by night totally changes.
The options for entertainment satisfy all tastes varying from the famous bouzoukia, which are the leaders in the Athenian entertainment, to the numerous theaters all around Athens offering a different type of entertainment.

Athens offers plenty of choices, since visitors can also explore its beautiful suburbs and neighborhoods, which are close to the historical center. The southern suburbs, located on the coast of the Saronic Gulf, such as PalaioFaliro, Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni offer many opportunities to take a walk along the seaside, while you will also find many beautiful organized and free beaches, large shopping centers and nightclubs (especially during the summer).

Athens has a couple of vantage points besides the Acropolis, from which visitors can get superb views of the city. Lycabettus Hill is really a limestone rock reaching almost 1,000 feet into the once-crystalline Athenian sky. Lycabettus Hill is "must see" destination in Athens, offering spectacular view.
It is situated near Kolonaki area, at 277 meters high above sea level. Legend has it that wolves used to seek refuge on this hill. That probably explains its name "Lycabettus: the hill walked by wolves". A funicular at the bottom of the hill (on Ploutárhou Street) takes you to the top, but there is also a road to drive up. Those who love hiking may also choose to walk! Whichever your preference, you will be rewarded with a 360˚ view of the city sprawling below, especially on a clear day. The panoramic view from the top just sweeps you away: Mount Parnes to the north, Piraeus and the Saronic Gulf to the west, whereas Acropolis stands imposingly before visitors’ eyes.
At the top of Lycabettus hill, there are the Chapel of St. George from the 19th century, a large open-air theatre, which has housed many Greek and International concerts, a cafe and a restaurant. In the evening, the top half is floodlit, and from the Acropolis it looks something like a giant souffle. By day, it's a green-and-white hill toppoed by a tiny, flaringly white church, Agios Georgios.
