One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Erechtheion will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Plaka and Acropolis Museum. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Hephaestus, stroll the grounds of The Tomb of Heinrich Schliemann (First Cemetry), and explore the ancient world of Theater of Dionysus.
