One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Temple of Hephaestus and Temple of Poseidon will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Philopappos Hill and Erechtheion. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Vouliagmeni (Akti Vouliagmenis & Astir Beach), Glyfada (ARCHELON Τhe Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece & Saints Constantine and Helen Orthodox Metropolitan Church) and Parousia Byzantine & Contemporary Art Gallery (in Plaka). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind Temple of Athena Nike, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, catch a live event at Panathenaic Stadium, and let your taste buds guide you at Athens Walking Tours.
