One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You've now added The Jewish Museum of Greece to your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Marathon Lake and Areopagus. Acropolis Museum and Benaki Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio (about 1h 15 min away). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Plaka, explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, explore the ancient world of Erechtheion, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of Agios Nikolaos.
