On the 5th (Fri), delve into the distant past at Temple of Olympian Zeus, take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, and then delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, then don't miss a visit to Syntagma Station, then take in nature's colorful creations at National Garden, and finally wander the streets of Plaka.

For traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Athens route planner.

Mumbai, India to Athens is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus, taxi, and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Mumbai to Athens. Prepare for colder weather when traveling from Mumbai in April: high temperatures in Athens hover around 24°C and lows are around 15°C.
