One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Visit Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Poseidon for their historical value. Do your shopping at Ermou Street and Orlik Gallery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes), Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach, Astir Beach, & more) and Donkey's Land (in Koropi). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, view the masterpieces at Pandora Art Gallery, explore the world behind art at Museum 'Atelier Spyros Vassiliou', and get a taste of the local shopping with Technohoros Art Gallery.
