One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Monastiraki and Amazing Chocolate. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temple of Poseidon and Temple of Hephaestus. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Melissokampos (in Maroussi), Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri) and Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach & Astir Beach). The adventure continues: stroll through Glyfada Beach, stop by Dido, enjoy the sand and surf at Schinias Beach, and admire all the interesting features of Panathenaic Stadium.
