Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Nea Makri (Sanctuary of the Egyptian Gods & Marathon Beach), Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio) and Vouliagmeni (Kavouri Beach, Vouliagmeni Beach, &more). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Temple of Athena Nike, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, don't miss a visit to Philopappos Hill, and admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum.
