Location, travel, accommodation

Athens, Greece

Athens is is the capital and largest city of Greece. It is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years. A center for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato's Academy and Aristotle's Lyceum, it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization.

In modern times, Athens is a large cosmopolitan metropolis and central to economic, financial, industrial, maritime, political and cultural life in Greece. It has a large financial sector, and its port Piraeus is both the largest passenger port in Europe, and the second largest in the world. The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by ancient monuments and works of art. The most famous monument is the Parthenon, considered a key landmark of early Western civilization. ( Athens in Wikipedia )

Athens is served by the Athens International Airport (ATH), located near the town of Spata which is 35 km (22 mi) east of Athens. The airport is served by the Metro, the suburban rail, buses, and also taxis. Athens is the hub of the country's national railway system (OSE), connecting the capital with major cities across Greece and abroad (Istanbul, Sofia and Bucharest).The Port of Piraeus connects Athens to the numerous Greek islands of the Aegean Sea.
