One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
For shopping fun, head to Ermou Street or Technohoros Art Gallery. Acropolis Museum and Athens Art Gallery will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Galerie Lefakis in Kifissia (about 34 minutes away). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Plaka, get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum, view the masterpieces at Onassis Cultural Centre, and get a taste of the local shopping with Eleni Marneri Galerie.
