One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae), Nafplio (Fortress Palamidi & Nauplion Promenade) and Corinth (Akrokorinthos & Archea Korinthos). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, make a trip to Plateia Syntagmatos, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Lycabettus.
