Athens is the indisputible cradle of western civilization. The homeland of art, science, philosophy and law. This Greek capital, with its 4 million inhabitants is one of the largest cities in the Mediterranean basin. About 40% of the entire population live here. In general, Flashbooking guides have been written for giving the essential information about the most visited cities in the world and in particular for any traveller or first-time visitor. For a short visit, a week-end, a city break, these free pocket guides are useful printable and downloadable tools available online.
Flashbooking’s happy travellers can book their rooms and beds not only in cheap hotels or cheap hostel Athens but also consider other budget accommodations in Bed and Breakfast, Guesthouses, Campsites, apartments, farm houses and much more. The Athens of today is a crowded congested city with a high level of pollution, a city in which the old and the new have failed to harmoniously combine together, where the city’s ancient monuments are swallowed up by a huge expanse of concrete and metal, signs of the indiscriminate city planning of the 20th century. With the monthly newsletter, Flashbooking puts at travellers, students, volunteers free disposal some useful pocket travel guides of major European cities: the Amsterdam City guide, the London City guide, the Prague City guide, the Paris City guide, the Rome City guide, the Florence City guide, and the freshly issued Athens City guide!! For the Athens travel guide Flashbooking staff efforts concentrate on making it simple to read dividing the Athens centre in different districts with their relevant amenities. However, in spite of this Athens is still a city worth exploring, a city of Mediterranean warmth and a crossroads and meeting point for western and oriental cultures.
