One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step off the beaten path and head to Temple of Hephaestus and Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre. For shopping fun, head to Ermou Street or Amazing Chocolate. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes) and Glyfada (Rosina Perfumery Glyfada & ARCHELON Τhe Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus, visit Plaka, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Lycabettus.

To find reviews, photos, and tourist information, use the Athens day trip planning site.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 63°F, and evening lows to 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
