Athens

— 7 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Acropolis Museum and Benaki Museum. Do some cultural sightseeing at Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Plaka, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Cycladic Art, pause for some photo ops at Erechtheion, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

To find where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Athens trip planner.
