Athens

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Acropolis Museum and Museum of Cycladic Art. Do some cultural sightseeing at Acropolis of Athens and Plaka. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, visit Monastiraki, appreciate the history behind Erechtheion, and get engrossed in the history at The Jewish Museum of Greece.

To see maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Athens travel planner.

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major aiports are Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, Skiathos Island National Airport and Mikonos Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
