Must do's in Athens
Acropolis: dominates Athens skyline and is by far the most visited and famous attraction. The Parthenon temple, dedicated to the goddess Athena, is world renowned.
The new Acropolis Museum: the artefacts of the Acropolis have found a fitting backdrop in their newly allocated well-arranged and recently built complex. With an total surface area of 25,000 square meters and over 4,000 objects displayed over an exhibition area of 8,000 m², your time here will be spend in a rich and rewarding way.
Pláka: lose yourself in the mists of time during your citytrip to Athens as you stroll through the narrow alleys of the oldest district of the city. Go treasure-hunting for souvenirs and take lots of pictures, but leave only your footsteps... and the fingerprints on your glass while you raise a toast to the wonders of your citytrip in one of the many cosy pubs. In nearby Monastiraki, there is a giant flea market on Sundays.
