Venue and Travel

The city of Athens is the capital of Greece. Athens is the largest city in Greece and is one of the world’s oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years.
Athens is recognised as a global city because of its location and its importance in shipping, finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, culture, education and tourism. It is one of the biggest economic centres in southeastern Europe, with a large financial sector, and its port Piraeus is both the largest passenger port in Europe and the second largest in the world.
Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon, considered a key landmark of early Western civilization. The city also retains Roman and Byzantine monuments, as well as a smaller number of Ottoman monuments.
Athens is also home to several large museums, such as the National Archeological Museum, featuring the world’s largest collection of ancient Greek antiquities, the Byzantine and Christian Museum and the new Acropolis Museum.
