Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach Athens (Piraeus)

A city of legend civilisation and enduring culture Athens is a majestic and magical urban sprawl. Extraordinary elegance and grace combine with grit and graft in Greece's capital where highways encase ruins from antiquity and gleaming museums and galleries stand beside concrete sprayed with edgy street art. These contrasts enhance and elevate the wonders of this 2 500-year-old city however which can count notable contributions to philosophy drama and democracy among its global legacy. Piraeus' giant port and naval base welcome you to the edge of the Athens' urban area. View more

From there it's a simple jaunt to the centre. The majestic ancient citadel of the Acropolis dominates an elevated platform and is a constant presence as you explore the city. The wonderful remains of the columned temple of the Parthenon - which date back to the 5th century BC - stand here representing the pinnacle of classical architecture. The nearby Acropolis Museum adds context to your visit and frames the broad views from its giant glass windows. Or rise up Mount Lycabettus to be rewarded with perhaps Athens' best panorama of the Acropolis sitting high over the city on its grand stage. See the marble horseshoe of the Old Olympic Stadium where the first modern Olympics were held in 1896 for more of the city's enduring legacy. Elsewhere golden beaches and temples stretch out along the coastline should you wish to explore a little further afield.
