Persuade me to visit Ancient Athens

Good morning guys! Each week I will set you a writing task that you can choose how to complete - hopefully you’ll be able to have a bit of fun with it. This week’s task is to persuade someone to visit Ancient Athens. There are many different ways to persuade someone to visit somewhere: - a brochure or leaflet - do it on paper and take photos or on word processor and upload it - a TV or radio advert - write a script and then get cracking recording! - a TV travel show - tell us all about the wonders of Athens as you stroll around the ancient citadel taking the viewers on a tour of what you can see - a speech - pretend to be on the Council of Athens in charge of raising funds and spreading the word about the glories of Athens to the outside world - a travel blog or vlog - imagine you are visiting Ancient Athens and telling us all about how wonderful it is either as a blog on a website or a video blog (a ‘vlog’) - a letter - write a persuasive letter to someone in Sparta trying convince them to visit/move to Athens Can you include the features below?
