If there is one "must" whilst in Athens, it's undoubtedly taking the time to appreciate the Roman ruins in all their glory; with plenty of them to explore you can get a true insight into Greek history. Amongst the most recommended is the Parthenon, a gem amongst historians. Constructed in 447BC, this was home to the goddess Athena for centuries, housing an impressive statue of her made from ivory and gold. Its other uses also included a Christian church, a mosque and an Ottoman's ammunition depot leading to its demise in the late 1600s by the Venetians. Other ruins to add to your list include the Acropolis, Erechtheion and the unmissable Temple of Poseidon.

For history of a different character, be sure to head to many of Athens's museums, whether that means one dedicated to art (Cycladic or Islamic), or arguably one of the most important in the world – the National Archaeological Museum. Full of thousands of Greek antiquities, you can appreciate the historical and artistic value of each individual era. Museum by day, Technopolis is a social, party driven location by night. It's unbelievable just how much you can experience by booking a cheap flight ticket to Athens with Compare and Fly.
