One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Acropolis Museum and The Jewish Museum of Greece. Do some cultural sightseeing at Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, explore the ancient world of Theater of Dionysus, see the interesting displays at Technopolis City of Athens, and wander the streets of Monastiraki.

To see maps, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Athens trip planner.

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 39°C, while at night they dip to 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
