One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Head to Ermou Street and Ioannidou Art Galleryfor some retail therapy. Visit Acropolis of Athens and Erechtheion for their historical value. Go for a jaunt from Athens to Sounio to see Temple of Poseidon about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, wander the streets of Plaka, shop like a local with Orlik Gallery, and take in the exciting artwork at Frissiras Museum.
