Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Church of Kapnikarea will appeal to history buffs. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ermou Street and Museum 'Atelier Spyros Vassiliou'. Spend the 5th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 8th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Plaka, appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus, take in the exciting artwork at Ioannidou Art Gallery, and get a taste of the local shopping with Technohoros Art Gallery.
