One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Panathenaic Stadium and Temple of Hephaestus. Go for a jaunt from Athens to Sounio to see Temple of Poseidon about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, take a stroll through Plaka, and appreciate the history behind Erechtheion.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 75°F in October, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
