One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Temple of Poseidon and Panathenaic Stadium. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri), Donkey's Land (in Koropi) and Vouliagmeni Beach (in Vouliagmeni). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, enjoy the sand and surf at Schinias Beach, take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Agios Nikolaos Church.
