Athens

— 7 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

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 Glyfada Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. 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: admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, take in the exciting artwork at Orlik Gallery, and get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum.

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.
