One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Visiting Glyfada Beach and Voula Beach will get you outdoors. Step off the beaten path and head to Vouliagmeni Beach and Astir Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Seaarrow (in Lavrio) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). Next up on the itinerary: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, and see the interesting displays at Acropolis Museum.
