One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore and learn at Acropolis Museum and National Archaeological Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Acropolis of Athens and Museum of Greek Folk Musical Instruments. Step out of Athens with an excursion to Attica Zoological Park in Spata--about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Plaka, visit Monastiraki, make a trip to Ancient Agora of Athens, and admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum.

To see reviews, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Athens holiday planner.

In January, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
