Groupon’s Guide To Athens
Rich with history yet beating to a modern European tune, Athens, the capital city of Greece, balances a maze of busy tavernas, restored historical sites, and tree-lined promenades linking marble temples to neoclassical museums.
Athens is home to The Acropolis, a famous citadel boasting ancient architectural wonders, with the sacred structure of the Parthenon foremost among them. For a little more background knowledge, the Kanellopoulous Museum hides a collection of jewellery, pottery, and Byzantine icons. Honouring the Olympian Gods, the Statue of Athena Promachos and the Temple of Zeus offer travellers a peek into the ancient and mythical world of Hellenic art and culture, while visitors who want to catch a glimpse of the golden age of Athens may head to the 6th-century Theatre of Dionysus.
