One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
National Archaeological Museum and Acropolis Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Popular historic sites such as Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Olympian Zeus are in your itinerary. When in Athens, make a side trip to see Scuba & Snorkeling in Lagonisi, approximately 1h 25 min away. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Plaka, take in the exciting artwork at Frissiras Museum, shop like a local with Ioannidou Art Gallery, and explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum.

To see traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Athens journey planning app .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in July, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
