Activities in Athens
AthenA trip to Athens is not just a trip to the capital of Greece, but a journey to the roots of Western culture and democracy. Even today, the traces of the epoch line the city and invite culture lovers to a leap in time, whether on your own or as part of a multi-hour tour. The Acropolis, with its famous Parthenon and Museum, is part of every visit to Athens as well as a visit to the district of Plaka, which is criss-crossed by narrow cobbled streets, in which you can experience the original Greece in a village atmosphere between taverns and small shops. If you still can not get enough of the ancient Greeks even after a mythical tour through the city or visiting the Agora and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, you can book a trip to the famous oracle of Delphi or the Poseidon Temple at Cape Sounion. Also essential to any trip to Athens is the change of the guard at the tomb of the "unknown soldier" in front of the parliament building.
