Athens, the cradle of democracy and the ancient Greek civilisation is full of world class museums and archaeological sites, thanks to its long history of 3000 years. Vivid nightlife, amazing beaches, high-quality food, ancient sites and significant museums, cultural events and important exhibitions are only some of the things that this interesting city has to offer its traveller. The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon, considered a key landmark of early Western civilization. The city also retains Roman and Byzantine monuments, as well as a smaller number of Ottoman monuments. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery.
