One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Escape the urban bustle at Vouliagmeni Beach and Voula Beach. Discover out-of-the-way places like Dasoktima Tatoiou and Mount Lycabettus. Go for a jaunt from Athens to Sounio to see Temple of Poseidon about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Panathenaic Stadium.

For more things to do, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens day trip planning site .

October in Athens sees daily highs of 28°C and lows of 18°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
