One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Monastiraki and Gallery Demeter. Popular historic sites such as Acropolis of Athens and Ancient Agora of Athens are in your itinerary. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Acropolis Museum, take a stroll around Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, look for gifts at ChiliMenta, and explore the ancient world of Temple of Olympian Zeus.

To see ratings, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Athens trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in July, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
