The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Venture out of the city with trips to Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae) and Nafplio (Bourtzi & Nauplion Promenade). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at National Garden, and wander the streets of Plaka.

Kalambaka

— 2 nights
The gateway to one of the largest monastery complexes in Greece, the small town of Kalambaka nestles against a landscape of imposing rock formations rising 400 m (1,300 ft) into the air. Nearly leveled during World War II, the town rebuilt and reinvented itself in the post-war period, quickly becoming one of the region's major travel destinations.
Kick off your visit on the 29th (Sat): take in nature's colorful creations at Varlaam Monastery and then see the interesting displays at Digital Projection Centre of Meteora’s History and Culture. Keep things going the next day: stop by Meteora Sandals (Ekfrasi), take in the spiritual surroundings of Monastery of the Great Meteoron, don't miss a visit to Meteora, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada), and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Byzantine Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary.
