The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.

Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Vouliagmeni (Kavouri Beach, Vouliagmeni Beach, &more), Schinias Beach (in Marathon) and Nea Makri (Sanctuary of the Egyptian Gods & Marathon Beach). There's lots more to do: stroll around Philopappos Hill, take an in-depth tour of National Archaeological Museum, explore the ancient world of Temple of Hephaestus, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Kapnikarea.
