Athens

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Athens is known for historic sites, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, don't miss a visit to Erechtheion, contemplate the long history of Ancient Agora of Athens, and take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum.

To find ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Athens day trip tool.

Ottawa, Canada to Athens is an approximately 15-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Ottawa to Athens due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Ottawa in April: highs in Athens hover around 24°C, while lows dip to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Fira.
