Athens — 7 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Archaeological Site Mycenae will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Mount Lycabettus and Limni Vouliagmeni. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Nafplio (Fortress Palamidi, Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, &more) and Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus & Lion Gate). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Corinth Canal, delve into the distant past at Ancient Agora of Athens, appreciate the extensive heritage of Philopappos Hill, and pause for some photo ops at Temple of Athena Nike.
