One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Head to Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre and Old Orient Jewelryfor plenty of shopping. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Asteras Glyfada Beach and Vouliagmeni Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Sea Turtle Rescue Centre (in Glyfada), Vouliagmeni (Megalo Kavouri & Kavouri Beach) and Marathon Beach (in Nea Makri). Next up on the itinerary: let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens, take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Glyfada Beach.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Athens online travel route planner .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
