One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Voula Beach. Plaka and Areopagus are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Grand Beach (in Lagonisi) and Vouliagmeni Beach (in Vouliagmeni). On the 3rd (Tue), spend a cool day on the water with Sea Stars. Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Glyfada Beach, delve into the distant past at Temple of Olympian Zeus, take a tour by water with Sail Greece Yachts, and make a trip to Ancient Agora of Athens.
