One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Acropolis Museum and Museum of Cycladic Art. Get some historical perspective at Acropolis of Athens and Ancient Agora of Athens. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum, wander the streets of Plaka, appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.
