Athens is a great cruise, or cruise and stay holiday destination. This city has been around for a very long time, with evidence of inhabitation from around 300 years ago. Most of the famous landmarks are slightly younger, with the famous Parthenon only being 1500 years old! The city has seen much change over the centuries, and it finally became the capital of Greece in the early 1800’s due to its location and historical importance. This is certainly a historic and interesting cruise and stay holiday destination!
The city, whilst rich in ancient history also has good modern fast connections for any visitor, either by rail, ship, metro, bus, tram or taxi. There are numerous museums dotted around the capital, packed full of Greek art, historical relics and local items of interest. The National Archaeological museum of Athens is of particular interest and houses a range of items from all over Greece.
Nightlife in the capital is fun and friendly and there are a huge range of tavernas, restaurants and bars to spend time in during your stay. Sandy beaches are just a short journey away from Athens, so you could always combine a cultural break with a lazy beach stay. There are many shops and department store, and for those who seek a bargain there is the famous Monastiraki flea market, similar to Camden, selling a variety of new and second hand stock.
