The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Take a break from the city and head to Mount Lycabettus and Astir Beach. Head to Melissinos Art -The Poet Sandal Maker and Olive Tree Storefor plenty of shopping. Step out of Athens with an excursion to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio--about 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, appreciate the history behind Temple of Athena Nike, admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum, and get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum.
