Activity
Named after Athena, patroness and Greek goddess of wisdom and the arts, Athens was the birthplace of western philosophy, performance art and the classical theater styles of comedy and drama. Today, Athens is a major European cultural capital and center for archeological research. This cultural legacy from ancient Greece is evident in Athenians’ pride in their ancient heritage and love for art in all its forms. Athens is home to a vast array of museums covering Greek art and culture from neo-classical times to the present. From the Museum of Cycladic Art (3300 - 2000 BC) to the Acropolis Museum (2000 BC – 1453 AD) the history of ancient, classical, Roman Era and medieval Greece lives on in Athens. The world-renowned National Archaeological Museum contains thousands of artifacts from Neolithic Era to Byzantine Greece. The Benaki Museum is well-known for its collections on Chinese and Middle Eastern Art while the National and Municipal Galleries in Athens contain thousands of pieces from modern Greek and international artists. Athens’ two thousand year-old love affair with theater has left modern Athens with more than 100 theaters both ancient and new. Each year, Athens hosts dozens of theater and film festivals including the massive four month-long Athens-Epidaurus Festival.
