One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get in touch with nature at Mount Lycabettus and Voula Beach. Discover out-of-the-way places like Ancient Agora of Athens and Limni Vouliagmeni. Venture out of the city with trips to Byzantine Museum of Argos (in Argos), Moni Osiou Patapiou (in Loutraki) and Corinth (Submersible Bridges & Corinth Canal). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Hephaestus, take a stroll through Anafiotika, take an in-depth tour of Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, and steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens.
