One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Appreciate the collections at National Archaeological Museum and Museum of Greek Popular Musical Instruments. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Asteras Glyfada beach and Anafiotika. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri) and Vouliagmeni Beach (in Vouliagmeni). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, make a trip to Philopappos Hill, delve into the distant past at Temple of Hephaestus, and kick back and relax at Schinias Beach.

For other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Athens road trip app .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
