One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus. Museum-lovers will get to explore Acropolis Museum and Archaeological Museum of Nauplion. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Nafplio (Fortress Palamidi, Nauplion Promenade, & more), Archea Korinthos (in Corinth) and Mycenae (Agora art gallery, Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, & more). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Plaka, appreciate the extensive heritage of Philopappos Hill, delve into the distant past at Temple of Athena Nike, and get engrossed in the history at Ancient Agora of Athens.

For photos, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Athens online trip builder .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in December, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
