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 Panathenaic Stadium and Donkey's Land. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Schinias Beach (in Marathon), Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio) and Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Agios Nikolaos Church, delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, and explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 77°F in May, and nighttime lows around 64°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
