Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Monastiraki and Temple of Poseidon. For shopping fun, head to Kerannymi Greek Traditional Products or Canvas. Change things up with a short trip to Dasoktima Tatoiou in Acharnes (about 58 minutes away). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle Rescue Centre, wander the streets of Plaka District, admire all the interesting features of Panathenaic Stadium, and get engrossed in the history at National Archaeological Museum.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 62°F, and evening lows to 50°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
