One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Panathenaic Stadium and Submarine Monument. 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: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, examine the collection at Permanent Exhibition Man and Tools, and appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in December, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
