One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Visit Chiliadou Beach and Alykes Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Archaeological Museum of Nauplion and Fortress Palamidi. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus & Lion Gate), Nafplio (Vouleftiko (Old State House) & Karathona Beach) and Kantia Beach (in Kantia). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Hephaestus, delve into the distant past at Ancient Agora of Athens, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and wander the streets of Anafiotika.
