One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Let the collections at National Archaeological Museum and Acropolis Museum capture your imagination. Take a break from the city and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Glyfada Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Panagia Faneromeni (in Vouliagmeni), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi) and Donkey's Land (in Koropi). And it doesn't end there: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, take a stroll through Plaka, get a taste of the local shopping with Eleni Marneri Galerie, and take in the exciting artwork at Underflow Record Store & Art Gallery.
