The past and the present of Athens unfolds before your eyes while we drive around the city's highlight spots and monuments like the Temple of Zeus, the Old Stadium, Syntagma square, the Parliament and the Tomb to the Unknown soldier, the Academy, the Library, and the National Gardens.

Discover the finest samples of art in the Acropolis museum galleries; walk with me to the Acropolis and let me tell you the fascinating story of the city that became the "School of Greece" and the cradle of the Western civilisation under the shade cast by Athena' s sacred olive tree.
