One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Temple of Hephaestus and Erechtheion. Acropolis Museum and Archaeological Museum of Nauplion will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Church of Panaghia (in Nafplio) and Mycenae (Lion Gate & Citadel and Treasury of Atreus). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, delve into the distant past at Temple of Athena Nike, contemplate the long history of Acropolis of Athens, and don't miss a visit to Ancient Agora of Athens.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Athens trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 75°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
