Athens is the oldest capital in Europe and the perfect destination for students and history enthusiasts. There is something ancient around almost every corner with fantastic museums that showcase 3000 years of culture in one of the most eventful regions of the world.

As a traditional bridge between East and West, Greece is a melting pot of cultures resulting in a unique mix different from anywhere else in Europe. The Fashion, cuisine and art of the country is on offer here, with delicious, cheap eats, various galleries and many other hidden gems dotted around the city, waiting to be discovered!
