Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Legrena Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate Acropolis of Athens and Church of Kapnikarea. Spend the 8th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Plaka, view the masterpieces at Orlik Gallery, browse the exhibits of Pandora Art Gallery, and get a taste of the local shopping with Ermou Street.

To see photos, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens online driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 77°F in May, and nighttime lows around 64°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
