  • You do need to use your imagination as well as your knowledge of Greek history if you are going to get something out of this Road. It is part of the site of the Agora, so you will walk along it anyway...  more »
  • Great stroll through the birthplace of democracy. Get a real sense for everyday Athenian life - even if you have to use your imagination a bit.  more »
  • The Panathenaic way was the main street of ancient Athens. It is a long wide Street (the wider Athens 110 m width), which started from the Dipylon gate on the site of the Tuileries, thereafter crossed diagonally the purchase from the Northwest to the southeast corner, with final culmination of the sacred rock of the Acropolis, where it stood around until the entrance of the Temple of Athena (Parthenon). From this passed the great procession that was addressed to the worship of the goddess during the feast of the great Panathenaic, introduced by peisistratos the 566 BC, from which the name of the street.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
