One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Archelon Sea Turtles Rescue Center, Athens Walking Tours, Propylaea, and other attractions you added. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Voula Beach. Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Vouliagmeni (Astir Beach & Vouliagmeni Beach), Attica Zoological Park (in Spata) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). On the 1st (Thu), spend a cool day on the water with Sea Stars. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Plaka, explore the ancient world of Erechtheion, enjoy the sand and surf at Glyfada Beach, and explore the striking landscape at Areopagus.
