Athens is the capital of Greece.  Democracy was formed here, as was much of the foundation of the American government.  Athens, which derives from the goddess Athena, today holds numerous monuments to the Roman and Byzantine history.  The most well known point in Athens is the Acropolis.  The Acropolis is known as the highest point in the city.  The Acropolis, which holds the Parthenon, was used as the place of worship for the goddess Athena.  Not long after the Roman Empire moved into Greece, the Parthenon was transformed to a place of worship for the Christian church.  

Areopagus, which is often known as 'Mars' Hill', has a very rich history as well.  Most Christians know of this area that was made famous by the Apostle Paul in the book of Acts, chapter 17.   

Modern day Athens was greatly transformed for the 2004 Summer Olympics. A new airport was built, the subway system (the Metro) was built, and the city began to see the influx of tourism during this time.
