Weekend breaks to Athens
Athens' ancient city has been an attractive option for weekend breaks because its history allows travellers to touch and see the birth of Western civilization. Its most famous tourist site is the Parthenon, a temple which has become the symbol of Athens and Greece. Along with that, the ancient Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphne Monastery are frequently visited by people on weekend trips. Because airfare in Europe is so reasonable it is easy to puddle jump over to Greece and take a weekend break among the ruins. You can walk through the National Archaeological Museum with the largest collection of Greek antiquity artefacts. After that your weekend break should take you to the National Library of Greece and a show at the Odeon of Heracles—the oldest theatre in Athens. If you are ready for a little modern flare on your weekend trip, find you way to the Athens Planetarium, one of the most advanced in Europe and the world.
