Modern Athens

Meet modern Athens...Post-war Athens turns to more contemporary trends and mimics the architecture and aesthetics of the big Western metropolis.

Many things have changed -in Greece and the rest of the world; however, we believe the soul of Athens and Greece remains the same, even when the times aim to diminish human values and the visions taught by the great masters and teachers of the past.
The historical and commercial city centre is the biggest attraction for thousands of tourists who visit the Greek capital each year. Especially when it comes to shopping, dinner and having fun, Athens has plenty of suggestions …
The new airport is among the best and safestr in the world and the main aviation junction for South Eastern Europe. “Eleftherios Venizelos” has gained many awards of excellence, initiating a new era for Greek aviation.
Traditional professions date a long time back and produce impressive, mostly handmade, pieces of art. The visiting of the city market and the exhibitions of popular art of all different times is proven an interesting experience.
The small retailers in the marketplace of Athens, the antique shops or the big modern art galleries have in store many handmade ornaments, rare collectors’ items and exquisite pieces of art.
A short walk from Syntagma sq. through the city centre for shopping may easily bring you to the old town district, where the ancient city of Athens co-exists with the modern in every moment of their history.
In ecclesiastical art, church architecture, holy painting and hymnology follow the order of Greek Byzantium.
Public transportation (suburban railway, metro and buses) is available 24 hours a day from the Athens International Airport to the city centre, the greater Athens- Attica area and the ports.
Most tourists usually visit the most important monuments and the "traditional neighborhoods" of the capital, which are in the well-known defined area of the "Historical Center".
