The publication starts with some introductory facts about the city of Athens, regarding its natural environment and the mythology surrounding its name. Then, there is a brief presentation of the history of the city from Prehistory to modern times. Afterwards, the visitor can follow the twelve walks around the city, which enable him to visit "mentally" all the important monuments and sites of Athens through time. The publication pays particular attention to the most important monuments of the city, such as the monuments of the Acropolis, and to lesser known but equally important ones. For example, St Elissaios, at Areos street, related to Alexandros Papadiamantis, since "the secular monk of Greek letters" used to chant there in the end of the 19th century.

The texts are enriched with a great variety of visual material: maps, original photographs of monuments and architectural drawings. In addition, in special frames there is additional information about people, areas and monuments, while the book also includes a glossary familiarizing readers with complex archaeological and architectural terms and various artistic movements.

The Book is on sale at the Museum Shop, in the Cultural Centre of FHW, as well as at major bookstores in Greece. For further information contact the Museum Shop of the Cultural Centre, tel.: +(30) 212 254 0000 or write at sales@ime.gr.
