One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Visit Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Poseidon for their historical value. Escape the urban bustle at Mount Lycabettus and Dasoktima Tatoiou. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Corinth (Corinth Canal & Akrokorinthos), Orea Eleni Natural Thermal Spring (in Loutra Elenis) and Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus & Lion Gate). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Temple of Hephaestus, pause for some photo ops at Erechtheion, explore the landscape on two wheels at Environmental Awareness Park Antonis Tritsis, and look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.
