As the birthplace of the Ancient Olympic Games, it was only fitting that Athens should also be the site of the first Modern Olympic Games in 1896. And over 100 years later, Athens once again opened its arms to the games.

In terms of its architectural offerings, the Acropolis of Athens and the accompanying Parthenon are among the city's - as well as possibly the world's - most beloved historical sites. The Acropolis is a flat-topped rock situated at about 500 feet above sea-level that holds the remains of a temple to the Greek Goddess Athena, for whom the city is named. Considered the most important surviving relic of Greek antiquity, scholars agree that the Parthenon embodies the pinnacle of beauty in Greek architecture.
