Athens is the capital city of Greece where prehistory shakes hands with late antiquity. The triumphal arch of Hadrian welcomes to the city’s monumental aura and Syntagma Station sits at its core. Here National Archaeological Museum exhibits the Neolithic, Cycladic, Mycenaean and Egyptian collections of epigraphs, sculptures, masks, fresco, pitchers, urns, vase, diadems and other things from as early as 1500 BC. Parthenon, the 438 BC temple of goddess Athena, sits on top of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Acropolis of Athens. The Orthodox Greek Metropolitan Cathedral can be called relatively modern. Athens is the birthplace of the modern Olympics and their love for sports is vividly displayed on their 3000 BC frescos. Grilled Souvlaki and gyros top Greek admiration for quality food.
