One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Do your shopping at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre and Technohoros Art Gallery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Nea Makri (Sanctuary of the Egyptian Gods & Marathon Beach), Vouliagmeni (Kavouri Beach, Vouliagmeni Beach, &more) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Temple of Athena Nike, appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Kapnikarea, and kick back and relax at Glyfada Beach.
