One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You've now added Attica Zoological Park to your itinerary. Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus will appeal to history buffs. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre and Museum 'Atelier Spyros Vassiliou'. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Karababa Castle (in Khalkis), Church of Panaghia (in Nafplio) and Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus & Lion Gate). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Ancient Agora of Athens, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Kapnikarea, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tzisdarakis Mosque (o Moschea della Fontana di sotto), and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.
