Athens

— 5 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

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 Areopagus. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Temple of Hephaestus and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Venture out of the city with trips to Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Seaarrow (in Lavrio) and Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach & Astir Beach). And it doesn't end there: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, see where the action happens at Panathenaic Stadium, don't miss a visit to Ancient Agora of Athens, and stop by Plaka.

August in Athens sees daily highs of 39°C and lows of 29°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
