One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Acropolis of Athens and Mount Lycabettus. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Acrocorinth (in Corinth) and Nafplio (Fortress Palamidi & Nauplion Promenade). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus, explore the ancient world of Ancient Agora of Athens, and explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum.

To see ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens road trip website .

If you are flying in from Poland, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in August, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
