2009-03-07 - 2009-03-14

Athens, the capital and largest city of Greece, dominates the Attica periphery; as one of the world`s oldest cities, its recorded history spans around 3,400 years. The Greek capital has a population of 750,000 within its administrative limits. The Athens Larger Urban Zone (LUZ) is the 7th most populated LUZ in the EU with a population of over 4 million. A bustling and cosmopolitan metropolis, Athens is central to economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece. Classical Athens was a powerful city-state. A centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato`s Academy and Aristotle`s Lyceum, Athens was also the birthplace of Socrates, Pericles, Sophocles and its many other prominent philosophers, writers and politicians of the ancient world. It is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by a number of ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon on the Acropolis. Tim and Miaomiao visited Athens and the nearby harbor city Piraeus, together with other Greek places, in March 2009.
