One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Erechtheion will appeal to history buffs. Appreciate the collections at Acropolis Museum and Museum 'Atelier Spyros Vassiliou'. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Nafplio (Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, Church of Agios Spyridonas, &more), Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Lion Gate, &more) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Chiliadou Beach, explore the ancient world of Temple of Hephaestus, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Lycabettus, and get into the urban bustle at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre.
