Athens is the capital City of Greece and considered by many to be the birthplace of democracy. Records show that is was populated more than 3400 years ago and this makes it one of the oldest cities in the world.
All roads may lead to Rome but without Greece there would have been no Rome. Greece is the cradle of Western Civilization and the Greeks gave us cultural gifts we’re still enjoying to this day. Everything from democracy to the Hippocratic Oath to the Olympic Games originated in Greece thousands of years ago.
