Get to know Athens with Viator

Greece’s capital is a singular mix of the grandiose old and the gritty new, where the ancient Acropolis sits like a beacon above a vast, modern city. Where else can you tramp around a 5th-century-BC temple, check out edgy street art, and catch an underground band perform all within just a few blocks? Neighborhoods like historical Plaka, bohemian Monastiraki, and tony Kolonaki also add depth and character to this sprawling Mediterranean metropolis.
