Synopsis

Romantics will find nothing to excite them in the sprawling metropolis of modern Athens, nothing until they reach the very heart. At the very centre lies one of the oldest cities in the world with stones and memories rolling back over 3,400 years. A powerful city-state in Classical times, Pericles in 461BC masterminded an ambitious building plan which left behind many of the ancient sites which visitors flock to see every day of the year. Amazingly, the Acropolis was built in just ten years. Now it requires a lifetime of preservation.
      All the major historic sites are connected by pedestrianised  routes. This book describes 11 tours in total either on foot or by public transport taking in all the important places, not just in Athens, but in the wider Attica. Places like the 11th century Monastery of Kaisariana, a mere 5km (3 miles) out of Athens and Daphni and Eleusis famed for its Eleusinian Mysteries. All this at your finger tips on your Kobo.
