Must see's include the Acropolis and the Parthenon, Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Zeus, along with a side trip to the Monastery of Kaisariani with its beautiful views of the ancient city.

Meanwhile, some of Greece's best beaches await about an hour off the coast via a short ferry hop to the islands of Aegina or Angistri.
