The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Temple of Hephaestus and Mount Lycabettus. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. Next up on the itinerary: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, admire the natural beauty at National Garden, catch a live event at Panathenaic Stadium, and get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum.
