One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Corinth (Akrokorinthos, Archea Korinthos, & more), Nafplio (Tiryns, Nauplion Promenade, & more) and Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae). The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, contemplate the long history of Ancient Agora of Athens, and get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum.
