One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Appreciate the collections at Acropolis Museum and Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum. Explore hidden gems such as Temple of Poseidon and Phaleron War Cemetery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Archaeological Museum of Vravrona (in Vravrona), Eleftherios Venizelos Permanent Exhibition (in Spata) and Church of Saint Nicholas (in Piraeus). There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, take a stroll through Plaka, and take an in-depth tour of National Archaeological Museum.

To see photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Athens road trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 15°C in January, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
