Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece.
It is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3400 years. Classical Athens was a powerful city-state. A center for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato's Academy and Aristotle's Lyceum, it is widely referred to as
the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. Athens is considered as one of the top tourist destinations in Europe.
