One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get some cultural insight at Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Temple of Poseidon and Erechtheion. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Pouda Beach (in Lagonisi), Erotospilia beach (in Porto Rafti) and Vouliagmeni (Megalo Kavouri & Vouliagmeni Beach). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, wander the streets of Plaka, appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find maps, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Athens trip planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In July, daytime highs in Athens are 38°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
