The Classic Greece

When it comes to ancient history, few European cities have as much to offer as Athens.

As the birthplace of classical Greece, it’s effectively ground zero for the entirety of Western civilisation. The story unfolds through incredible ancient architecture like the Acropolis, but not everything is on such an imposing scale. The tiny neighbourhood of Anafiotika, for instance, is almost as historic – its winding streets and whitewashed houses providing an opportunity to explore the real Athens away from the city’s iconic sights.
