Tour Athens"Time Out" Athens Tour Athens. Athens has proved itself a thoroughly 21st-century city. Mindful of the immensity of its past but determined not to become a heritage theme park, the city continues to change. A new metro system, revamped museums, regenerated residential areas and newly vibrant bars, nightlife and arts scenes sit alongside a new sense of determination. A cosmopolitan Athens is emerging, an International city that nevertheless retains a strong sense of its unique identity. Written and researched by Athens residents, Time Out Athens takes you around western civilisation's most influential monuments, to beautiful beaches within easy reach of town, to restaurants and cafes, from trad tavernas to modish haunts, and beyond the city to some of Greece's other natural and man-made glories.

The ParthenonThe Parthenon: From Antiquity to the Present The Parthenon from antiquity to the modern era. Recent discoveries, such as the marble sculpture fragments found during the current restoration work on the Acropolis, or a vase excavated in Northern Greece whose decoration echoes a lost pedimental composition, have forced scholars to reconsider many aspects of one of the most important monuments of classical antiquity. Bringing together essays on various aspects of this world-renowned temple, this book examines the dramatic setting of the temple and its impact on modern architects such as Le Corbusier; new reconstructions and interpretations of Pheidias' vast sculptural program; in-depth analysis of architectural refinements; the techniques employed in making the colossal gold-and-ivory cult statue; and a consideration of the Christian and Muslim phases of the Parthenon's history. Collectively, they enhance our understanding of one of the icons of Western art.

Passions of Classical AthensCourtesans and Fishcakes: Consuming Passions of Classical Athens. Passions of Classical Athens. The Ancient Athenians as supreme hedonists. Their society was driven by an insatiable lust for culinary delights, fine wine and pleasures of the flesh. Indeed, great fortunes were squandered and politicians' careers ruined through ritual drinking at the symposium, or the wooing the highly-coveted prostitutes. Examining overlooked ephemera of this ancient culture, pamphlets, forensic speeches, comic satires, recipes and menus, James Davidson brings an incisive eye to this history of the people who invented Europe, democracy and art.
