See if you can spot some of the local birdlife with a visit to one of the area's lakes, such as Vouliagmeni Spa Lake or Lake Marathon.

Whether you're up for checking out the coastline or just lounging back and watching the clouds, Kavouri Beach, Voula Beach and onAqua Sports Park will satisfy your desires.

Need some time away from the stresses of city life? Head on over to Mount Lycabettus and Areopagus Hill. Lovers of nature will also enjoy Hymettus and Mars HIll.

See the world from a new perspective with a trip to one of the area's educational cultural spaces. The Benaki Museum and the National Archaeological Museum of Athens offer a range of collections that are bound to spark your curiosity. You might also want to consider a visit to the Technopolis and the Benaki Islamic Art Museum.

Maritime enthusiasts can dock in at the Averof Museum, a treasure trove of important nautical history. If the tides permit, continue cruising through this region's seafaring past at the Hellenic Maritime Museum.

Expand your knowledge on scientific research and discovery as you wander through the great range of artifacts, models and displays at Athens Planetarium and National Observatory of Athens.

From the moment you arrive, it's obvious that the collections at the Byzantine and Christian Museum and the National Historical Museum are the product of an obsession. Gazing back from behind the protective glass, these striking specimens will spark your imagination. You might also like to explore the Kanellopoulos Museum and the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus.

Do you love art? You'll be spoiled with galleries of all varieties here.

Travel back through time and unveil stories of yesteryear at the Numismatic Museum of Athens and the Eleftherios Venizelos Museum. The Museum of Traditional Greek Ceramics and the National Bank of Greece Historical Archive are also worthwhile choices.

Roman Agora and the Ancient Agora are certainly worth visiting, even if history isn't your forte. You might also like to take a few photos at Hellenic Parliament and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not, you'll be sure to enjoy a visit to the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike. Greek Evangelical Church and Kaisariani Monastery are two more popular holy places.

Athens' most popular sights can overshadow its less touristy, yet equally rewarding activities. A couple of interesting places to start with are the National Library of Greece and Flisvos Marina. If you can squeeze it in, also think about visiting Alimos Marina or Glyfada Marina.
