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