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 National Archaeological Museum. Do some cultural sightseeing at Acropolis of Athens and Benaki Museum. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Plaka, explore the world behind art at Museum of Cycladic Art, pause for some photo ops at Erechtheion, and see the interesting displays at Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum.
