Tour description:

Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece,  dominates the Attica periphery and it is one of the world’s oldest cities, as its recorded history spans around 3,400 years.

The capital of Greece is a cosmopolitan metropolis, modern Athens is central to economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece and it is rated as an alpha- world city. Classical Athens was one of the  most powerful city-states in ancient world. A center for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato’s Academy, Aristotle’s Lyceum, and wisest of man Socrates. It is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, largely due to the impact of its cultural and political achievements during the 5th and 4th centuries BC on the rest of the then known European continent.

Experience an Splendid Greece Tours private tour, combining many of the city’s principal modern and classical sights and the port of Piraeus (Faliron) when St. Paul came from North Greece to visit Athens.
