One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Acropolis of Athens and National Archaeological Museum. Get outdoors at Mount Lycabettus and Glyfada Beach. When in Athens, make a side trip to see Attica Zoological Park in Spata, approximately 32 minutes away. On the 19th (Mon), spend a cool day on the water with Sea Stars. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Acropolis Museum, explore the ancient world of Temple of Olympian Zeus, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Hephaestus, and take in the awesome beauty at Hymettus.
