It's hard not to be bowled over by the Greek capital of Athens, and on this great six day tour of the city and the famous sites outside it, you will visit all the iconic landmarks like the Acropolis, which is crowned by the stunning Parthenon temple. This ancient city has undergone a radical period of urban renewal that didn't stop with the 2004 Olympic Games. It is now a more sophisticated cosmopolitan place with new art and leisure precincts. Stylish new restaurants and shops continue to open, hotels have been revamped and you will not fail to be impressed by the vibrant street life.
