Athens — 7 nights

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Acropolis Museum and Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum. Do some cultural sightseeing at Acropolis of Athens and Benaki Museum. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Plaka, stop by Monastiraki, see the interesting displays at The Jewish Museum of Greece, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Hephaestus.

To find where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Athens trip planner.
