Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Acropolis Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at Plaka District and Erechtheion. When in Athens, make a side trip to see Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, approximately 58 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, explore the ancient world of Temple of Olympian Zeus, take an in-depth tour of Byzantine & Christian Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus.

To find maps, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Athens travel itinerary creator.
