One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Plaka District and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Let the collections at National Archaeological Museum and Acropolis Museum capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Monastiraki, steep yourself in history at Ancient Agora of Athens, kick back and relax at Glyfada Beach, and explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens.

To see maps, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Athens vacation planner.
