One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore and learn at Acropolis Museum and Byzantine and Christian Museum. Relax by the water at Schinias Beach and Voula Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Spata (Eleftherios Venizelos Permanent Exhibition & Attica Zoological Park), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi) and Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri). Rev up your beach day on the 13th (Sat) with Ikarian Cruises. Make the 14th (Sun) an awe-inspiring day at Dasoktima Tatoiou. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Temple of Hephaestus, see where the action happens at Panathenaic Stadium, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, and admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum.

For photos, ratings, maps, and tourist information, go to the Athens route site.
