One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Papagiannakos Winery and Electric Railway Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Museum-lovers will appreciate Vorres Museum and Museum of Olympiacos. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Donkey's Land (in Koropi), Eleftherios Venizelos Permanent Exhibition (in Spata) and Archaeological Museum of Vravrona (in Vravrona). Make the 23rd (Wed) an awe-inspiring day at Dasoktima Tatoiou. Rev up your beach day on the 24th (Thu) with Ikarian Cruises. There's still lots to do: get into the urban bustle at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, see where the action happens at Panathenaic Stadium, browse the exhibits of Kori, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Agios Nikolaos Church.
