Athens is the capital of Greece. Today a modern European city, but in ancient times it was the capital of one of the leading Greek states with a powerful creative civilization and a vast ocean empire. As in ancient times, the city is still dominated by the Acropolis, a hilltop citadel topped with Parthenon.

With a history that made significant contributions to Western culture, it is rich with museums that highlight the masterpieces and glories of ancient Athens and Greece.  Athens has some of the most famous museums and historical monuments in the world.
