Athens is world-famous as the birthplace of democracy. From there, we got the backbone of all of Western civilisation. However, there’s more to the Greek capital than history. After being wowed by the Acropolis and the Parthenon, stroll through the luscious National Garden, or unleash your inner petrolhead at the Motor Museum.
