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 Mount Lycabettus. Relax by the water at Beach Club Alimos and Akti tou Iliou. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Glyfada (ARCHELON Τhe Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece & Asteras Glyfada Beach), Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri) and Vouliagmeni (Kavouri Beach, Megalo Kavouri, &more). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus, appreciate the history behind Erechtheion, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Kapnikarea, and enjoy the sand and surf at Pouda Beach.
