Flanked by some of the world's most beautiful seas, Greece is located on the southernmost point of the Balkan Peninsula. Explore the country's largest city and capital, Athens, on your study abroad experience. Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world, with a recorded history dating back over 3,400 years. Historians consider Athens the cradle of Western civilization. Today, the city artfully blends ancient history with modernity. You'll see new buildings and stadiums built for the 2004 Summer Olympics in the midst of world-famous ancient ruins.
Athens has the third largest port in the world, allowing visitors to flock to the city by sea. The flourishing population of approximately 660,000 people makes Athens a bustling, cosmopolitan city. You'll notice a vibrant street life combined with a relaxed culture. As you explore, you'll discover the true spirit of the city in the surrounding neighborhoods, which all have lively music, food, and people.
Athens serves as one of the most important cities in southern Europe for international trade, tourism, entertainment, arts, and education. The city still carries on Greek traditions and customs while rapidly evolving, reflecting its location at the crossroads between east and west. Be sure to visit the ancient Acropolis, a structure that has seen the city grow and transform since the fifth century BC. Athens really is a classroom in itself!
