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 Temple of Poseidon and Panathenaic Stadium. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Donkey's Land (in Koropi), Schinias Beach (in Marathon) and Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens, visit Plaka, admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum, and get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum.

To find ratings, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Athens trip planning tool.
