One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mount Lycabettus and Temple of Hephaestus. Your inner history buff will appreciate Acropolis of Athens and Fortress Palamidi. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Orea Eleni Natural Thermal Spring (in Loutra Elenis), Mycenae (Lion Gate, Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, &more) and Corinth (Corinth Canal & Akrokorinthos). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, wander the streets of Anafiotika, appreciate the extensive heritage of Philopappos Hill, and explore the ancient world of Ancient Agora of Athens.

To find ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Athens trip site.
