One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Fortress Palamidi will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Corinth Canal and Acrocorinth. Venture out of the city with trips to Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Archaeological Museum of Nauplion (in Nafplio) and Zoodochou Pigis Church (in Kefalari). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Erechtheion, steep yourself in history at Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum, and appreciate the history behind Temple of Athena Nike.
