Athens

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step off the beaten path and head to Temple of Poseidon and Panathenaic Stadium. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri), Schinias Beach (in Marathon) and Donkeysland (in Koropi). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens, visit Plaka, admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum, and get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum.

In May, daytime highs in Athens are 77°F, while nighttime lows are 64°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
