One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore and learn at National Archaeological Museum and Museum of Cycladic Art. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Temple of Athena Nike and Temple of Hephaestus. Take a break from Athens with a short trip to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, about 1h 15 min away. Spend the 6th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, explore the ancient world of Ancient Agora of Athens, and steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens.
