Athens

— 6 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Acropolis of Athens and Erechtheion. Relax by the water at Glyfada Beach and Megalo Kavouri. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Glyfada (Asteras Glyfada Beach & ARCHELON Τhe Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi) and Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach & Kavouri Beach). There's much more to do: get into the urban bustle at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Kapnikarea, kick back and relax at Marathon Beach, and take a stroll through Plaka.
