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 Temple of Poseidon and Church of Kapnikarea. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Schinias Beach (in Marathon), Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri) and Donkeysland (in Koropi). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens, stop by Plaka, explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, and take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum.
