The capital of Greece took its name from the goddess Athena, the goddess of wisdom and knowledge. Athens is the symbol of freedom, art, and democracy in the conscience of the civilized world. In the center of town are two hills, the Acropolis with the monuments from the Age of Pericles, and Lycabettus with the picturesque chapel of Ai Giorgis (Saint George's). Athens today is a modern city, alive and on the go. In the countless shops, visitors will find whatever they may need. In the restaurants and tavernas they can enjoy any taste, and in the night clubs, discos and bars they can drink and dance the night away. Home of the 2004 Olympic Games. Universal Rent a Car offers any type of accommodation -from apartments to deluxe hotels- in any part of Athens.
