Athens – the capital city and largest urban area in Greece. It’s not known as the most beautiful of cities – yes there is a lot of urban sprawl, but for sure Athens has its beautiful parts.

The pedestrianised walk around the base of the Acropolis hill takes in the many ancient ruins of the Agora, as well as the twinkly fairy-lit restaurants of Adrianou, the outdoor cafes along Apostolou Pavlou, and the serene green park on Filopappou Hill – with Acropolis views everywhere you look.
