Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Temple of Poseidon and Ieros Naos Agia Triada. You'll get in some beach time at Vouliagmeni Beach and Marathon Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Sea Turtle Rescue Centre (in Glyfada), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi) and Donkey's Land (in Koropi). Spend the 7th (Mon) exploring nature at Dasoktima Tatoiou. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Schinias Beach, explore the ancient world of Mycenaean vaulted tomb - Acharnes, and admire all the interesting features of Panathenaic Stadium.
