One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get in touch with nature at Sea Turtle Rescue Centre and Mount Lycabettus. Acropolis of Athens and Areopagus will appeal to history buffs. Go for a jaunt from Athens to Spata to see Attica Zoological Park about 32 minutes away. On the 30th (Tue), spend a cool day on the water with Sea Stars. Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Glyfada Beach, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, delve into the distant past at Temple of Hephaestus, and pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus.

For where to stay, photos, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Athens visit 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. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
