One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Acropolis of Athens and Areopagus. Get a sense of the local culture at Plaka and Monastiraki. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Attica Zoological Park (in Spata), Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio) and Vouliagmeni Beach (in Vouliagmeni). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus, enjoy the sand and surf at Glyfada Beach, and explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum.
