One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
We've included these beaches for you: Schinias Beach and Glyfada Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Temple of Hephaestus and Temple of Poseidon. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri), Vouliagmeni (Vouliagmeni Beach & Astir Beach) and Grand Beach (in Lagonisi). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Ancient Agora of Athens, stop by Melissokampos, take a stroll through Monastiraki, and see where the action happens at Panathenaic Stadium.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Athens driving holiday planning app.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in July, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
