Athens is the first point of contact for millions of travellers arriving in Greece. And that’s no new thing – this capital city was once the seat of the Ancient Greeks. The hilltop Acropolis of Athens is the most obvious ancient landmark, but there are plenty of archaeological museums and art galleries, too. Even the train stations showcase archaeological finds. The city’s got a trendy side, too, with grungy bars and backstreet murals popping up all over the place. Best of all, Athens is less than a 4-hour direct flight away from London.
