Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Explore hidden gems such as Food Tours and Erechtheion. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Corinth Canal (in Corinth) and Vouliagmeni Lake (in Loutraki). And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, make a trip to Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus.

For maps, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens day trip planning site .

Toronto, Canada to Athens is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Toronto to Athens due to the time zone difference.
