Rick Steves' Europe

Athens and Side Trips

Season 5 Episode 8 | 25m 3s | Video has closed captioning.

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 pulse of the modern city, but waste no time getting to my favorite side-trip destinations: the ruins of the oracle at Delphi and a fast boat to the romantic, traffic-free Isle of Hydra.
