Athens is the largest city in Greece with an incredibly rich history. Especially the classical period is known to the general public with marble temples as iconic monuments. The Parthenon is the ultimate example, but also the temple of Hephaestus on the ancient Agora should not be overlooked. This temple is in fact the best-preserved Doric temple in all of Greece! Apart from ancient sanctuaries, admire modern architecture and breathtaking views during our walking tour through the old town.
Discover the history of the highlights through stories about historical, contemporary, and mythical characters.
