One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Take a break from the city and head to Mount Lycabettus and Glyfada Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Acropolis of Athens and Plaka. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Rema ton Mylwn (in Corinth), Street Market Tripoli (in Tripoli) and Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, explore the world behind art at Museum 'Atelier Spyros Vassiliou', take a stroll through Ermou Street, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
