Get a sense of the local culture at National Archaeological Museum and Acropolis of Athens. Visit Temple of Olympian Zeus and Erechtheion for their historical value. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Plaka District, get engrossed in the history at Byzantine & Christian Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Hephaestus, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Glyfada Beach.
