Athens

— 11 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mount Lycabettus and Philopappos Hill. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Megalo Kavouri and Beach Club Alimos. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: ARCHELON Τhe Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece (in Glyfada), Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes) and Kouvoutsakis Art Institute (in Kifissia). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Temple of Hephaestus, appreciate the history behind Temple of Athena Nike, contemplate the long history of Lion Gate, and make a trip to Erechtheion.
