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 Temple of Poseidon 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 (Fortress Palamidi, Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, &more), Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Lion Gate, &more) and Limni Vouliagmeni (in Loutraki). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus, pause for some photo ops at Erechtheion, explore the ancient world of Ancient Agora of Athens, and admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum.
