One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Temple of Poseidon and Acropolis of Athens. Temple of Olympian Zeus and Temple of Hephaestus will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Plaka, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Cycladic Art, get engrossed in the history at Byzantine & Christian Museum, and admire all the interesting features of Panathenaic Stadium.
