One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Visit Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Olympian Zeus for their historical value. Let the collections at Acropolis Museum and Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Nafplio (Nauplion Promenade, Fortress Palamidi, &more), Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae) and Corinth (Corinth Canal & Rema ton Mylwn). And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Lycabettus, wander the streets of Plaka, kick back and relax at Kantia Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Glyfada Beach.
