One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Olympian Zeus will appeal to history buffs. Acropolis Museum and Byzantine & Christian Museum will appeal to museum buffs. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Plaka District, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Lycabettus, explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Monastiraki.

To find photos, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Athens itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from Lebanon, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In December in Athens, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 9°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
