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 Temple of Hephaestus 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: Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Lion Gate, &more), Nafplio (Fortress Palamidi, Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, &more) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). And it doesn't end there: explore the ancient world of Ancient Agora of Athens, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Athena Nike, make a trip to Erechtheion, and contemplate the waterfront views at Limni Vouliagmeni.
