Athens may be ancient… but it never gets old and it constantly finds innovative ways to mix “antique” with “contemporary.”
Monumental, free spirited and eternally exciting — these are perfect descriptions for the city known as one of the world’s largest open-air museums.
Athens has been nominated as a 2020 Best European Destination by the annual poll “European Best Destinations.”
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate this iconic city’s remarkable rebirth than by pushing it to the top in 2020 – and you can help it reach number one.
With equal measures of grunge and grace, Athens merges the past with the present in the most slender way. It is a city of paradoxes and great contrasts, in the country that invented courtesy toward people who are far from their home — hospitality (philoxenia).
An intellectual beacon of the ancient world with spectacular Mediterranean landscapes bathed in the renowned light, Athens is a sophisticated cosmopolitan hub with delicious gastronomic delights, electrifying nightlife, creative vibes and a booming art scene.
Athens faces competition from 19 other European hotspots including Madrid, Berlin and Rome.
Voting lasts until February 5, 2020.
