One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Vouliagmeni Beach and Schinias Beach. Visiting Astir Beach and Marathon Beach will get you outdoors. Take a break from Athens with a short trip to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, about 1h 15 min away. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Kapnikarea, take a stroll through Anafiotika, see where the action happens at Panathenaic Stadium, and enjoy the sand and surf at Voula Beach.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
