One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Let the collections at Acropolis Museum and Ioannidou Art Gallery capture your imagination. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ermou Street and Technohoros Art Gallery. Go for a jaunt from Athens to Spata to see Attica Zoological Park about 34 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, take in the exciting artwork at Deste Foundation Centre For Contemporary Art, explore the galleries of Eleni Marneri Galerie, and enjoy the sand and surf at Glyfada Beach.
