What trip to Athens would be complete without seeing the Acropolis. The ancient city boasts a number of impressive temples and structures such as the Parthenon and the Temple of Athena Nike.

The beautiful town of Glyfada is also a great place to spend the day with activities on offer such as Sailing and surfing.
There are plenty of festivals to be enjoyed in Athens if you visit during the summer months. Festivals of note include the aptly named “Athens Festival”.
