Athens is the capital of Greece. The city of Socrates, Pericles and Aristotle which took its name by its protector, goddess Athena, daughter of Zeus, the goddess of wisdom and knowledge. The Athenians were the first to realise the immense cultural importance of the democratic discussion and the creative exchange of views and ideas.

A bustling and cosmopolitan metropolis, Athens is central to the economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece. Located at the crossroads of three continents, Athens is a modern city, having strong links with the past and many prospects for the future. It is a vibrant city with great appeal and charm. It is among the most beautiful, hospitable and exciting cities in Europe and also one of the most affordable.

It is impossible to describe all the sites of interest and cultural opportunities offered by Athens, which is another one good reason to participate in our Congress. You will have the chance to visit Acropolis, the marble temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, built in the 5th century BC. Parthenon is one of the most extraordinary architectural achievements in the world
