Travel to Athens
The first place you should visit for sightseeing in Greece is Athens. Spending just one afternoon there it is possible to visit some of the most interesting places. The Acropolis is the top attraction, along with the Roman Agora.
Starting with the Acropolis would be a very good decision. There, once you have passed the Propylaea–the majestic entrance to the enclosure–you will be fascinated by the Parthenon. Other temples include the Erechtheum and the Temple of Athena.
For its part, you should take a walk through the National Archaeological Museum, which treasures numerous finds from both sites in its invaluable collection of ancient art.
Already moving away from Athens, we recommend the regions of Peloponnese and Corinth, with Argolis, the Cyclopean gates, and the theater of Epidaurus, as well as the circuits that visit Olympia, Delphi, and the monasteries of Meteora in the region of Thessaly.
Places of Interest in Athens
Temple of Poseidon in Athens
The sanctuary of Sounion (temple of Poseidon) is one of the most important constructions in Attica. It is at Cape Sounion, just 1-hour drive from the historic center of Athens (about 76 km). Visiting the famous temple of Poseidon requires a trip near the coast, where you can see an amazing view of the sea.
It is advisable to walk around Sounion at sunset, as it will allow you to admire the romantic sunset.

Without a doubt, the busiest neighborhood in Athens. It is east of the Acropolis and is known as "the neighborhood of the gods" for its important historical sites and museums. Walking through its narrow streets is almost a traditional walk when you visit Athens.
