One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step off the beaten path and head to Archaeological Museum of Piraeus and National Observatory of Athens - Penteli. Get a sense of the local culture at Floating Naval Museum Battleship Averof and Marathon Battlefield & Burial Mound. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Eleftherios Venizelos Permanent Exhibition (in Spata) and Archaeological Museum of Vravrona (in Vravrona). And it doesn't end there: explore the different monuments and memorials at Mycenaean vaulted tomb - Acharnes, catch a live event at Panathenaic Stadium, and explore the world behind art at Vorres Museum.
