Get some historical perspective at Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Schinias Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri), Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes) and Vouliagmeni Beach (in Vouliagmeni). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Donkey's Land, get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, admire all the interesting features of Panathenaic Stadium, and wander the streets of Plaka.
