As the historical capital of Europe and the cradle of Western civilization, Athens dates right back to the Neolithic Age. The influence of the classical era is still very much in evidence with its famous monuments, such as the Pantheon, as well as monuments from the Roman and Byzantine eras. Must see sights include the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, both the National Archaelogical and Benaki Museums, as well as Lycabettus Hill, from which there are spectacular views over the city. The city has become more walkable over recent years with the traffic free pedestrianised Archaeological Promenade, which connects the foot of the Acropolis and other major archaeological sites.
