by Foodie

Rick Steves’ Europe Travel Guide | The thriving capital of Greece sprawls out from the foot of its magnificent Acropolis. We’ll tour the must-sees of ancient Athens: the Parthenon, Agora, and amazing National Archaeological Museum. We’ll take the fast-paced pulse of the modern city, but waste no time getting to Rick’s favorite side-trip destinations: the ruins of the mystical oracle at Delphi and a fast boat to the romantic, traffic-free isle of Hydra
