One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Glyfada Beach and Beach Club Alimos. Get outdoors at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Hymettus. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi), Attica Zoological Park (in Spata) and Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Acropolis of Athens, take a stroll through Plaka, take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Voula Beach.
