One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Visit Acropolis of Athens and Philopappos Hill for their historical value. Museum-lovers will appreciate Acropolis Museum and Museum of Cycladic Art.

The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Temple of Poseidon, admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, take a stroll through Anafiotika, and pause for some photo ops at Erechtheion.
