One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get a sense of the local culture at Ermou Street and Erechtheion. For shopping fun, head to Monastiraki Flea Market or Nerdom. Step out of Athens to go to Glyfada and see Asteras Glyfada beach, which is approximately 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Plaka, take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus, and contemplate the long history of Anafiotika.

Plan trip to Athens with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
