Time Out Athens Summary

Time Out Athens by Time Out Guides Ltd.

It's impossible to visit Athens without being reminded of its immense history, from the iconic Acropolis, Roman ruins and mosaic-filled Byzantine churches to stellar archaeological and ethnographic museums. But Athens is also very much a vibrant, contemporary metropolis, with lively alfresco cafes, a flourishing dining scene that embraces both the traditional and inventive modern Greek cuisine, and energetic nightlife that spills out on to beach clubs in summer. It's a dichotomy encapsulated by the Acropolis Museum, a striking building designed by superstar architect Bernard Tschumi to house the Parthenon Marbles, including - eventually - the Elgin Marbles. *Sightseeing in Athens *Athens hotels *Athens restaurants & cafes *Athens bars *Athens shops *Athens maps
