Athens is the capital of Greece and the largest city in Greece. It's also one of the oldest cities in Europe, dating back more than 3,000 years.

The Acropolis of Athens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes ruins from Ancient Greece as well as parts of its medieval fortifications. The Acropolis has been used as a fortress since at least Neolithic times (about 7500 BC). The Acropolis is a steep hill overlooking Athens, situated about 350 meters (1,150 feet) above sea level. The main part of the Acropolis contains the 5th-century BC Parthenon temple to Athena and other buildings associated with the Athenian Golden Age.

Athens was called "Athina" during ancient times and later became known as "Athenai," which means "inhabitants of Athens." In ancient times it was also sometimes called "Hephaistia" after Hephaestus (Vulcan), god of fire and craftsmanship; or sometimes simply as "Polis" ("city"), but today we know that these names were used for different places at different times: For example, Polis meant both Athens proper and its port town Piraeus; while Hephaistia could refer either specifically just south from central Athens down towards Cape Sounion (where Poseidon lived) or generally throughout Attica province--and even farther north up into Boeotia province!
