Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Temple of Hephaestus and Anafiotika are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Appreciate the collections at Museum of Cycladic Art and Archaeological Museum of Eretria. Venture out of the city with trips to Donkey's Land (in Koropi), Wine Museum Tzivani (in Khalkis) and Alykes Beach (in Drosia). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at Temple of Athena Nike, delve into the distant past at Temple of Poseidon, do a tasting at Lykos Winery, and admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum.

Make your Athens itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Athens. In May, daytime highs in Athens are 29°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Nafplio.

Nafplio, a city famed for its narrow lanes and elegant architecture, provides a comfortable base for exploring the many surrounding ancient sites.
On the 11th (Thu), take an in-depth tour of Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Panaghia, then look for gifts at TASTE3, then examine the collection at War Museum of Nafplio, and finally explore the world behind art at Nafplio National Gallery. Here are some ideas for day two: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Karonis Distillery, pause for some serene contemplation at Ieros Naos Evaggelistria, appreciate the history behind Lion of Bavaria, then admire the striking features of Vouleftiko (Old State House), then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of Agios Spyridonas, and finally examine the collection at Komboloi Museum.

Kalamata is the second most populous city of the Peloponnese peninsula, after Patras, in southern Greece and the largest city of the homonymous administrative region. Museum-lovers will appreciate Military Museum and ENGRAVING MUSEUM TAKIS KATSOULIDIS. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Castle of Kalamata and Ypapanti Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kalamata: Messini (Ancient Messini Stadium & Arcadian Gate). There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of The Church of Agioi Apostoloi, have some family-friendly fun at Great Escape Kalamata, browse the fresh offerings at Kalamata Farmer's Market, and don't miss a visit to Aristomenous Square.

A city with a stormy history and a cosmopolitan heart, Thessaloniki attracts visitors with its diverse culinary scene, dynamic nightlife, and youthful energy.
