Athens (pronounced /ˈæθənz/; Greek: Αθήνα, Athina, IPA: [aˈθina]), the capital and largest city of Greece, dominates the Attica periphery; as one of the world's oldest cities, its recorded history spans around 3,400 years.

The Greek capital has a population of 745,514 (in 2001) within its administrative limits[1] and a land area of 39 km2 (15 sq mi).[3] The urban area of Athens extends beyond the administrative city limits with a population of 3,130,841 (in 2001)[1] and a land area of 412 km2 (159 sq mi).[3] According to Eurostat, the Athens Larger Urban Zone (LUZ) is the 7th most populated LUZ in the European Union (the 5th most populated capital city of the EU) with a population of 4,013,368 (in 2004).[4] A bustling and cosmopolitan metropolis, Athens is central to economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece and it is rated as an alpha world city.[5] It is rapidly becoming a leading business centre in the European Union. In 2008, Athens was ranked the world's 32nd richest city by purchasing power [6] and the 25th most expensive[7] in a UBS study.

Pour une capitale européenne, c'est très mal entretenue! Ça me rappelle le centre ville de Casa! :)

c'est vrai mais faut pas non plus exagerer ! Athènes n'est pas très belle niveau architecture mais c'est assez propre dans l'ensemble.
