One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Acrocorinth (in Corinth), Nauplion Promenade (in Nafplio) and Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae). There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, wander the streets of Monastiraki, steep yourself in history at Ancient Agora of Athens, and take some stellar pictures from Mount Lycabettus.
