One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Relax by the water at Schinias Beach and Glyfada Beach. Let the collections at Acropolis Museum and Benaki Museum capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri), Vouliagmeni (Akti Vouliagmenis & Vouliagmeni Beach) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Temple of Poseidon, stop by Plaka, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Kapnikarea, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus.

For traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Athens online trip itinerary maker.
