One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get a sense of the local culture at Acropolis Museum and Acropolis of Athens. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Glyfada Beach. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Plaka, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Kapnikarea, take an in-depth tour of National Archaeological Museum, and explore the ancient world of Temple of Olympian Zeus.
