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 Panathenaic Stadium. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, take in nature's colorful creations at National Garden, stop by Plaka, and get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum.
