One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Bring the kids along to Acropolis of Athens and Fortress Palamidi. Venture out of the city with trips to Nauplion Promenade (in Nafplio) and Akrokorinthos (in Corinth). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, wander the streets of Plaka, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Lycabettus, and admire the natural beauty at National Garden.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Athens trip itinerary planner.
