One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Mount Lycabettus and Corinth Canal. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Lion Gate, &more), Nafplio (Fortress Palamidi, Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, &more) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, explore the ancient world of Ancient Agora of Athens, and take a stroll through Plaka.

For photos, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read Athens trip builder.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
