One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Take a break from Athens with a short trip to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, about 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, get great views at Mount Lycabettus, take a stroll through Plaka, and pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus.

For maps, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read our Athens day trip planner .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in August, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
