One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Shop till you drop at Monastiraki and BR Foods, Greece.. Bring the kids along to Acropolis of Athens and Acropolis Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Yabanaki Beach (in Vari), Attica Zoological Park (in Spata) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). On the 3rd (Mon), spend a cool day on the water with Sea Stars. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Plaka, stop by Gallery Demeter, and get a taste of the local shopping with Ermou Street.
