Athens flourished as the world's most powerful city in the 5th century BC.
Heritage of the classical era is still very much in evidence here, with many ancient monuments and works of art woven into the fabric of the city.
A day trip to Delphi - one of the most important archaeological sites in Greek history - is highly recommended. Travelling with an expert guide, you'll explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town, home to the Temple of Apollo, and stroll around the Delphi Archaeological Museum.
