One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore and learn at Acropolis Museum and National Archaeological Museum. Visit Acropolis of Athens and Saints Constantine and Helen Orthodox Metropolitan Church for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi), Vouliagmeni Beach (in Vouliagmeni) and Donkey's Land (in Koropi). Spend the 10th (Fri) exploring nature at Dasoktima Tatoiou. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Schinias Beach, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, admire all the interesting features of Panathenaic Stadium, and take a stroll through Plaka.

For maps, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Athens travel planner .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 29°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
