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 Seaarrow. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Temple of Hephaestus and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Venture out of the city with trips to Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio) and Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach & Astir Beach). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, see where the action happens at Panathenaic Stadium, explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, and take a stroll through Plaka.
