One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Let the collections at Archaeological Museum of Nauplion and Museum of Cycladic Art capture your imagination. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Ancient Agora of Athens and Temple of Poseidon. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Nafplio (Nauplion Promenade & Karathona Beach), Mycenae (Archaeological Site Mycenae, Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, &more) and Chiliadou Beach (in Paralia Chiliadou). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind Temple of Athena Nike, enjoy the sand and surf at Kantia Beach, explore the ancient world of Temple of Hephaestus, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Kapnikarea.
