One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Nafplio (Nauplion Promenade, Fortress Palamidi, &more), Corinth (Akrokorinthos, Archea Korinthos, &more) and Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Lycabettus, wander the streets of Plaka, and don't miss a visit to Ancient Agora of Athens.
