Athens — 7 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Acropolis Museum and Benaki Museum. Do some cultural sightseeing at Acropolis of Athens and Plaka. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, examine the collection at Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum, delve into the distant past at Erechtheion, and wander the streets of Monastiraki.
