One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Nafplio (Nauplion Promenade, Fortress Palamidi, & more), Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae) and Corinth (Acrocorinth, Archea Korinthos, & more). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, steep yourself in history at Ancient Agora of Athens, and get great views at Mount Lycabettus.

To find other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Athens journey tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. September in Athens sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 24°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
