One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
For shopping fun, head to Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre or Old Orient Jewelry. Discover out-of-the-way places like Food Tours and Asteras Glyfada Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Vouliagmeni (Kavouri Beach, Vouliagmeni Beach, & more), Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri) and Erotospilia beach (in Porto Rafti). There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, pause for some photo ops at Erechtheion, kick back and relax at Glyfada Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Voula Beach.
