One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Do some cultural sightseeing at National Archaeological Museum and Acropolis Museum. Benaki Museum and War Museum of Athens will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of Athens to go to Sounio and see Temple of Poseidon, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Plaka, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus, delve into the distant past at Theater of Dionysus, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Cycladic Art.

To see photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Athens trip planner .

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Athens are 39°C, while nighttime lows are 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
