One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step out of the city life by going to Glyfada Beach and Voula Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Temple of Hephaestus and Panathenaic Stadium. Venture out of the city with trips to Seaarrow (in Lavrio), Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach & Astir Beach) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, don't miss a visit to Ancient Agora of Athens, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, and stop by Plaka.

If you are flying in from Jordan, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. August in Athens sees daily highs of 39°C and lows of 29°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
