One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Anafiotika and Asteras Glyfada Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Temple of Hephaestus and Erechtheion. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Sea Turtle Rescue Centre (in Glyfada), Vouliagmeni (Kavouri Beach, Vouliagmeni Beach, & more) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi). Next up on the itinerary: get into the urban bustle at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, tour the pleasant surroundings at Erotospilia beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Donkey's Land, and get engrossed in the history at Ancient Agora of Athens.
