Okay, so Athens has undoubtedly had its best days. Considered to be the birthplace of democracy, the olympic games and the cradle of modern western civilisation, Athens was once the home of great historical luminaries such as Plato, Socrates and Aristotle.
Now it’s home to Panathinaikos and Olympiakos.
Still, snatches of its awesome history are still there for you to see and just standing next to the School of Athens can send chills down your spine.
Athens also gets plenty of sunshine!
