One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get some cultural insight at Plaka and National Archaeological Museum. Go for a jaunt from Athens to Sounio to see Temple of Poseidon about 1h 15 min away. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, take some stellar pictures from Mount Lycabettus, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, and explore the ancient world of Temple of Hephaestus.
