One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus. Get outdoors at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Areopagus. There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, join in the after-dark buzz at Rabbithole, appreciate the history behind Erechtheion, and kick back and relax at Glyfada Beach.

For traveler tips, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 77°F in May, and nighttime lows around 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
