One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Take a break from the city and head to Glyfada Beach and Voula Beach. Popular historic sites such as Acropolis of Athens and Areopagus are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Attica Zoological Park (in Spata) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Plaka, admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum, delve into the distant past at Temple of Olympian Zeus, and appreciate the history behind Erechtheion.
