Athens Vacation Packages

This area of Attica is home to around 750,000 inhabitants.

Explore, laugh and be amazed at Museum of Greek Children's Art and Allou Fun Park, two excellent activities for children of any age.

You'll be able to take loads of photos with the exotic creatures at Attica Zoological Park and Greek Reptile Centre. When you add in Glyfada Sea Turtle Rescue Centre, you and the family are guaranteed to have an amazing zoological encounter.

Relax with a drink, roll the dice or simply take in the high-stakes atmosphere at Regency Casino Mont Parnes.

Admire an eclectic range of plants, trees and flowers as you walk around the sprawling greenery of Diomedes Botanic Garden.

When the sun is shining, pack some lunch and find a shady nook at one of the area's pleasant green spaces, such as Filopappos Hill and Athens National Garden. You'll also find plenty of room for a game or two on the grass at Pedion Areos Park and Koutouki Cave.

Go for a hike and enjoy the mirror-like water at Vouliagmeni Spa Lake and Lake Marathon. If the weather is right, you may even like to lose your shoes and dip your feet in the shallows.

Looking for a place to spend a relaxing afternoon? Pack some supplies and head out to Kavouri Beach or Voula Beach for fun day outdoors. Locals will also recommend you visit Astir Beach and onAqua Sports Park.

Switch your phone to silent and have a break from the noise of the modern world at Mount Lycabettus and Areopagus Hill. Hymettus and EOT Beach Club Alimos are also popular with nature enthusiasts.

Set aside a day or two to explore some of the varied cultural institutions in the area. New Acropolis Museum and Benaki Museum offer a range of collections that are bound to spark your curiosity. Another two to look at are National Archaeological Museum of Athens and Technopolis.

Marine history enthusiasts can dock in at Averof Museum, a treasure chest of important artifacts and tales of the sea. If the tides permit, continue cruising through this region's seafaring traditions at Hellenic Maritime Museum.

The science museums here have vast amounts of inventions, models and displays. Examine the wonderful world of science with a visit to Athens Planetarium or National Observatory of Athens.

Some travelers think of natural museums as the realm of children, but the curious collections of Byzantine and Christian Museum and National Historical Museum show that there's enough to keep the adults captivated too. Kanellopoulos Museum and Archaeological Museum of Piraeus are also well worth checking out.

Do you love art? You'll be spoiled with galleries of all sizes here. Stop by Benaki Islamic Art Museum and Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art for the best of what this creative hotspot has to offer. National Museum of Contemporary Art and Athens National Gallery are also well worth a look if you can fit them in before dinner.

History comes alive at Numismatic Museum of Athens and Eleftherios Venizelos Museum thanks to their variety of illuminating displays. Museum of Traditional Greek Ceramics and National Bank of Greece Historical Archive are also worthy choices.

To learn more about the area's colorful past, make sure you visit its many remaining historical sites. Start your history tour at Parthenon or Acropolis. More tales from a bygone era await at Roman Agora and Ancient Agora.

The area's spiritual side can be experienced at Temple of Olympian Zeus and Erechtheion. If you'd like to explore a couple more religious sites, keep an eye out for tours at Temple of Athena Nike and Greek Evangelical Church.

This region's most celebrated sights often overshadow its less visited, yet equally rewarding attractions. National Library of Greece and Flisvos Marina might be just what you're after. Also, contemplate checking out Alimos Marina and Glyfada Marina if you've got the time.

To thoroughly enjoy your stay in the capital, consider staying at one of the 281 Athens lodgings on Expedia's extensive hotels guide.

At the premium end of the range, check out the latest Expedia deals at the Hotel Grande Bretagne, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Athens, at 1 Vasileos Georgiou A' str, or the King George, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Athens, at 3 Vasileos Georgiou A' Street. Alternatively, if you're looking to make some savings, you might want to consider staying at the Periscope Hotel, at 22 Charitos Str, Kolonaki, or the Hermes Hotel, at 19 Apollonos Street, Plaka, Syntagma.

If you are stopping over for just a night or two and only have limited time to take in Athens' star attractions, you might find it easier to stay at the Nina's Athenian Loft or the AVA Hotel & Suites, which are both situated nearby Acropolis.
