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 Mount Lycabettus and Areopagus. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Monastiraki and Gallery Demeter. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Marathon Lake (in Marathon) and Astir Beach (in Vouliagmeni). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle Rescue Centre, get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum, don't miss a visit to Acropolis of Athens, and take a stroll through Plaka District.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In May, daytime highs in Athens are 29°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
