Introduction

Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece. Athens dominates the Attica region and is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years and its earliest human presence. Athens is the historical capital of Europe, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments. In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in two centuries since it has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm. Although individuals have endured difficult circumstances since the start of the economic crisis in 2009, the city as a whole crackles with energy in art shows, political debates and even on the walls of derelict buildings, as Athens became one of Europe's most noted spots for street art. Beyond Athens, down the Attica peninsula, are more spectacular antiquities, as well as very good beaches, such as those near historic Marathon.

Athens has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate. The dominant feature of Athens’ climate is alternation between prolonged hot and dry summers and mild winters with moderate rainfall.  The dominant feature of Athens’ climate is alternation between prolonged hot and dry summers and mild winters with moderate rainfall.  The average temperature in the winter is in the low teens (10-12°C), while spring and fall bring average temperatures in the mid-teens (15 - 19°C).
