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. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, take in nature's colorful creations at National Garden, and stroll through Mount Lycabettus.
