One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Papagiannakos Winery and Floating Naval Museum Battleship Averof. Let the collections at Archaeological Museum of Vravrona and Eleftherios Venizelos Permanent Exhibition capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Donkey's Land (in Koropi), Sea Turtle Rescue Centre (in Glyfada) and Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes). On the 24th (Thu), spend a cool day on the water with Ikarian Cruises. And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Amazing Chocolate, admire the masterpieces at Vorres Museum, see the interesting displays at Museum of Olympiacos, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.

For where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Athens day trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In January in Athens, expect temperatures between 15°C during the day and 7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
