One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Food Tours and Mount Lycabettus. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Corinth Canal (in Corinth), Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus & Lion Gate) and Nafplio (Archaeological Museum of Nauplion & Fortress Palamidi). The adventure continues: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, wander the streets of Anafiotika, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Athena Nike, and contemplate the waterfront views at Vouliagmeni Lake.
