One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get some cultural insight at National Archaeological Museum and Acropolis of Athens. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Vouliagmeni Beach (in Vouliagmeni), Sea Turtle Rescue Centre (in Glyfada) and Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Plaka, delve into the distant past at Temple of Olympian Zeus, get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, and shop like a local with Ermou Street.
