Athens is the capital of Greece and the largest city in the country. It is often referred to as the cradle of Western Civilization and the Birthplace of Democracy as well and offers much for visitors to do and see.
In this episode, I talk about the history of Athens and how it was established and how it came to play a vital role in history and helped to shape the world as we know it. I then talk about many of the highlights of the city ranging from ancient ruins and archeological sites to rooftop bars and street art.
I also cover some of the best day trips to do from Athens and explain, overall, why it is worth at least a few days on your agenda if not more!
