“Just a few metres away from Syntagma metro station and right next to the Greek parliament lies the national garden which, together with the zappeion hall garden, covers 24 hectares full of vegetation, rare kinds of plants, saplings and birds. The Garden is accessible from seven entrances. The central entrance on Amalias Avenue, one on Vasilissis Sophias Avenue, three on Irodou Attikou Street and two more in the area of Zappeion park. Before it was renamed “National”, the garden was called “royal” or “the garden of Amalia” the queen to whom it owes its rare existence. The interest of Queen Amalia, wife of king Otto, in the Garden was such that she is said to have spent at least three hours a day personally taking care of it. She herself also planted the iconic 25-metre-high Washingtonia palm trees which grab the attention when one enters the garden from the gate on Vasilissis Amalias Avenue.”

“You must visit this amazing historical gem. You can see the Parthenon, sitting atop the Acropolis (“sacred rock”) from all over the city, tempting you to climb up and explore the ruins. No matter how many times you catch a glimpse, it’ll take your breath away. And while it is impressive from a distance, it’s even more amazing up close. Originally built as a fortress, this impressive structure is now the symbol of Athens. Give yourself at least half a day to hike up, explore this masterful creation and its surroundings, enjoy the views from the top, hike back down and grab a bite to eat and explore the Plaka District.”
