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 Limni Vouliagmeni. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Lion Gate, &more) and Nafplio (Fortress Palamidi, Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, &more). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Corinth Canal, appreciate the history behind Erechtheion, walk around Philopappos Hill, and explore the ancient world of Temple of Athena Nike.
