One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Ancient Agora of Athens will appeal to history buffs. Acropolis Museum and Temple of Olympian Zeus are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach, Astir Beach, & more), Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio) and Donkey's Land (in Koropi). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Glyfada Beach, steep yourself in history at Areopagus, admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum, and get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum.
