General History / Mythology

Since the city’s name is directly derived from the ancient goddess, Athena – Zeus’s capable daughter – Greece’s capital city is obviously an ancient site-lover’s heaven. From the ancient city streets surrounding the Acropolis with its crown edifice, the Parthenon, in the center; to the magnificent temple of Poseidon at the southern tip of Sounion; or, the more modern cultural experiences such as the Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center in Faliro, you’ll never have a dull moment.
