Athens — 6 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre and Temple of Hephaestus. Relax by the water at Beach Club Alimos and Megalo Kavouri. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Glyfada (ARCHELON Τhe Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece & Asteras Glyfada Beach), Vouliagmeni (Kavouri Beach & Vouliagmeni Beach) and Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Temple of Athena Nike, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, take some stellar pictures from Mount Lycabettus, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Kapnikarea.
