The Birthplace of Democracy

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 Mycenaean vaulted tomb - Acharnes. Get a sense of the local culture at Floating Naval Museum Battleship Averof and Vorres Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Archaeological Museum of Vravrona (in Vravrona), Eleftherios Venizelos Permanent Exhibition (in Spata) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). And it doesn't end there: look and learn at National Observatory of Athens - Penteli, catch a live event at Panathenaic Stadium, and get engrossed in the history at Marathon Battlefield & Burial Mound.
