One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Visit Acropolis of Athens and Fortress Palamidi for their historical value. Family-friendly places like Acropolis Museum and Plaka will thrill your kids.

There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Temple of Hephaestus, appreciate the history behind Erechtheion, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Kapnikarea.
