Considered the birthplace of Western civilization, Greece’s influence still resonates today in the fields of architecture, science, engineering, and philosophy. Greece offers a myriad of experiences, landscapes and activities. Athens—the capital city and homeland to gods, goddesses and some of the world's greatest philosophers and athletes—brims with iconic ancient temples, and also hosts a number of glorious parks and beaches. Your stay in Athens includes a panoramic tour of the city, taking in the major highlights, including the Acropolis, the new Acropolis Museum, the Panathenaic Stadium, and the Parthenon, before heading on a food-focused market tour of bakeries, cheese stalls, spice vendors, and more and concludes with an evening at a local tavern, with dinner and a Greek folklore show.
