According to the list, the best place to visit in 2017 is Canada. Athens is fifth on the list.

Conde Nast Traveller notes that Athens is not only a historical city, but is now emerging as a capital of modern art, thanks to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre and Greece’s new National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST). The magazine notes that Athens is making a comeback, although in the recent past it had been overshadowed by other European capitals such as Rome. Moreover, it is mentioned that the Greek capital is a stopover for travel to beautiful islands such as Corfu.
