Athens

— 5 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step out of the city life by going to Glyfada Beach and Astir Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ancient Agora of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus. Venture out of the city with trips to Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Seaarrow (in Lavrio) and Vouliagmeni Beach (in Vouliagmeni). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, catch a live event at Panathenaic Stadium, and admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum.
