Kick off your visit on the 15th (Fri): take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Kapnikarea, wander the streets of Plaka, delve into the distant past at Erechtheion, then explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, and finally appreciate the history behind Temple of Athena Nike. On the next day, get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum, then delve into the distant past at Temple of Hephaestus, then stroll through Philopappos Hill, and finally get into the urban bustle at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre.
