One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Benaki Museum and Byzantine & Christian Museum. You'll explore and learn at Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art and Vorres Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Marathon Bike Park (in Nea Makri), Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio) and Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach & Astir Beach). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Lycabettus, identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle Rescue Centre, delve into the distant past at Erechtheion, and steep yourself in history at Ancient Agora of Athens.
