Athens: 10 Incentives - Athens
1. Visit the Acropolis - A visit to Athens' most famous feature, the Parthenon, is now even more pleasureable since the pedestrianisation of the area surrounding the hill on which it stands. The 2,442-year-old structure is being cleaned bit by bit, so expect to see plenty of scaffolding and pieces of building lying about. Most of the Doric frieze, that once went all the way around the building, now resides in the British Museum. But the perfection of the structure continues to dazzle, and views across the city and out to sea are amazing.
