Quick Guide to Athens
Athens is one of the most exciting city break destinations in Europe and a major port of call on many Mediterranean cruises - where ships dock in Piraeus, the port. The Acropolis, the Agora and much more await!
History lies around every corner in Athens, with the Acropolis and the Parthenon acting as enduring symbols of the birth of democratic civilisation. Other sights such as the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the Theatre of Dionysos are enough to inspire an interest in the past in even the most indifferent visitor.
