One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Appreciate the collections at Acropolis Museum and National Archaeological Museum. Discover out-of-the-way places like Mount Lycabettus and Orea Eleni Natural Thermal Spring. Venture out of the city with trips to Corinth (Corinth Canal & Akrokorinthos), Mycenae (Lion Gate, Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, & more) and Nafplio (War Museum of Nafplio, Karathona Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, don't miss a visit to Erechtheion, get to know the fascinating history of Philopappos Hill, and appreciate the history behind Temple of Athena Nike.
