SIGHTS IN ATHENS AND ATTICA
The major archaeological, historical and cultural sites of Ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine Athens are located (and some are buried under) the center of the modern city. The newly paved promenade (Dionysou Areopagitou) allows you to visit the most significant archaeological sites around the Acropolis, by strolling along the walkway. The promenade provides easy access to the Acropolis, the Herod Atticus Odeon, the Theater of Dionysus, Thission, The Ancient Agora and Keramikos.

At the foothill of the Acropolis is the Plaka district in which cars are prohibited to enter. The area has a 19th century feeling and it is full of tourist shops and tavernas. Further down is the bazaar area of Monastiraki with a characteristic Eastern feeling, and adjacent archaeological sites such as the beautifully preserved Temple of Thission and the Ancient Agora.

The two main squares of the city are Syntagma Square and Omonia Square, which are connected by two major streets, Stadiou Street and Eleftheriou Venizelou (Panepistimiou) Street. Athens is encircled by three hills; the Acropolis, the Philippapou and the Lycabettus.
