Athens – A trip back through 6,000 years of history

Inhabited since the Neolithic age, Athens is considered Europe’s historical capital. The city reached the zenith of its long and fascinating history in the 5th century B.C. when its values and civilization acquired a universal significance and glory.

Today, Athens offers visitors a unique experience – a trip back through 6,000 years of history.

In Athens, summer does not come to an end in August; it remains exciting and full of surprises in September as well. Sun-drenched beaches with crystal waters and a superb nightlife make Athens Riviera an incredible setting much similar to a typical cosmopolitan Greek island.

Poros

Your next destination is Poros Island. In antiquity Poros consisted in fact of two islands, Sphería and Kalávria, but the last explosion of the Méthana volcano in 273 BC radically changed the morphology of the area. Lush pine trees vegetation, crystal clear beaches, a lively waterfront adorned with shops, cosy cafes and restaurants as well as a wide selection of entertainment venues are the ingredients of this quiet, yet cosmopolitan, destination that attracts visitors from all age groups.
