Athens, Greece is a destination that travellers tend to describe as “ancient.” However, if you dive deeper into the city life — you’ll uncover an unexpectedly creative, modern side of the city. With equal measures of grunge and grace, Athens is a heady mix of history and edginess. Cultural and social life plays out amid, around and in ancient landmarks. The magnificent Acropolis, visible from almost every part of the city, reminds Greeks daily of their heritage and the city’s many transformations.
