One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Ermou Street and Areopagus. Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Sail Greece Yachts will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Attica Zoological Park in Spata (about 32 minutes away). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Hymettus, take a stroll through Plaka, and view the masterpieces at Onassis Cultural Centre.
