One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get some cultural insight at Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Popular historic sites such as Ancient Agora of Athens and Theater of Dionysus are in your itinerary. Take a break from Athens with a short trip to Vouliagmeni Beach in Vouliagmeni, about 38 minutes away. The adventure continues: wander the streets of Plaka, stroll through Porto Rafti Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Glyfada Beach, and delve into the distant past at Temple of Hephaestus.
