Athens — 7 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Temple of Hephaestus and Philopappos Hill. Let the collections at Acropolis Museum and National Archaeological Museum capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Lion Gate, &more), Nafplio (Ieros Naos Evaggelistria, Fortress Palamidi, &more) and Athens Divers Club (in Anavyssos). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Temple of Poseidon, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Lycabettus, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, and steep yourself in history at Ancient Agora of Athens.
