One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step out of Athens with an excursion to Archaeological Site Mycenae in Mycenae--about 1h 30 min away. The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, contemplate the long history of Ancient Agora of Athens, take a stroll through Plaka, and admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum.

For traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Athens online attractions planner .

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in September, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
