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 Philopappos Hill will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Mount Lycabettus and Limni Vouliagmeni. 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). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, explore the ancient world of Ancient Agora of Athens, and pause for some photo ops at Temple of Athena Nike.
