Athens

— 7 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Fortress Palamidi will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Mount Lycabettus and Corinth Canal. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Nafplio (Archaeological Museum of Nauplion & Nauplion Promenade), Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Lion Gate, &more) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Kapnikarea, wander the streets of Plaka, and pause for some photo ops at Temple of Athena Nike.
