Top Athens Sites

AthensAthens is a one of those tourist cities that has everything.  You can find amazing beaches, relax, night clubs and pubs, great food, and historical sites.  History, architecture and artefact lovers can find so many sites that feed their curiosity and love for Greek culture and remains.  One of the first sites that needs mentioning is the Acropolis and the Parthenon.  These remains are a standing symbol of Greek history and tales, as well as standing in a spot that gives you one of the most panoramic views over the city.  The National Archaeological Museum is where you should go next.  Expect to spend at least a couple hours in it and see a collection of artefacts from the Cycladic Island, Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations.  Other sites you should try to see are the Temple of Poseidon, Piraeus Archaeological Museum, Nautical Museum and Lycabettus Hill.
