ΑΤΗENS ELECTED 2ND BEST EUROPEAN DESTINATION

The Brussels-based organization, “European Best Destinations”, which promotes culture and tourism in Europe, conducted an online voting for the prestigious title of Best European Destination 2016. Among the 20 selected destinations, Athens ranked second, thus surpassing cities like Paris and Milan!

WHY:

 Often considered as the historical capital of Europe and the birthplace of democracy, Athens has developed into a modern metropolis, which yet maintains the unequalled charm of the past, obvious in every corner. Its visitors have the opportunity to get a glimpse of its 6,000-year history, by wandering through the renowned monuments, the artefacts aging from the antiquity and the Middle Ages, and the buildings of the 19th and 20th centuries.

“From the iconic Acropolis, rising above the city, to charming up and coming neighborhoods and contemporary art galleries, the city of Classic Marathon and Olympic Games is a majestically quirky clash of past and present. One of the world's oldest cities with a recorded history of 3,500 years, the Greek capital is constantly undergoing urban renewals to keep up with the evolution of time. Athens lives up to all the hype!”
