One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Attica Zoological Park (in Spata) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). Spend the 2nd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 8th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, steep yourself in history at Ancient Agora of Athens, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and get great views at Mount Lycabettus.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 86°F in June, and nighttime lows around 70°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
