Athens Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Definitely the city to visit to go back to the source of western civilisation! A dazzling, harmonious site with beautiful ancient moments and museums overflowing with splendour, Athens is the very source of western civilisation. Roman, Byzantine and neo-classical souvenirs; an oriental, populous atmosphere: Athens is all this and more! With less than 10,000 inhabitants in the 19C, it is now the heart of a bustling, cosmopolitan centre, stretching 15 km from Piraeus to Kifissia.
