One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Benaki Museum, Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art and Parthenon. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus.

And it doesn't end there: browse the eclectic array of goods at Monastiraki, stop by Olive Tree - Ελιά Olive Wood Products, admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, and delve into the distant past at Erechtheion.
