One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Relax by the water at Asteras Glyfada Beach and Vouliagmeni Beach. Visit Temple of Hephaestus and Philopappos Hill for their historical value. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes) and Megalo Kavouri (in Vouliagmeni). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Anafiotika, explore the ancient world of Temple of Athena Nike, don't miss a visit to Erechtheion, and identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.

For other places to visit and other tourist information, go to the Athens trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
