Athens — 7 nights

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Acropolis of Athens and Ancient Agora of Athens will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Mount Lycabettus and Limni Vouliagmeni. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Nafplio (Fortress Palamidi, Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, &more), Mycenae (Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Lion Gate, &more) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, explore the activities along Corinth Canal, and pause for some photo ops at Erechtheion.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiports are Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, Skiathos Island National Airport and Mikonos Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
