Alexander the Great and a great many other rulers have made Greece a history and culture-rich country, with Athens being at the centre of it all. From Greek mythology to house of famous rulers, you’ll find it in Athens. This old city is now a concrete forest with Mount Lycabettus standing tall with lush green trees all around, ready to give you a contrast in biomes should you want it.
However, the city is crowded with tourists and the weather does the place no favors either; if it’s raining, you just lost a day of vacation.
