One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Fri): wander the streets of Plaka, then delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Areopagus. On your second day here, enjoy the sand and surf at Voula Beach, then stroll through Glyfada Beach, and then pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus.
