One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Vouliagmeni Lake, Parthenon and Glyfada Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Poseidon. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Monastiraki and BR Foods, Greece.. Step out of Athens to go to Vouliagmeni and see Astir Beach, which is approximately 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Plaka, see the interesting displays at Acropolis Museum, look for gifts at Kerannymi Greek Traditional Products, and admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum.
