One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Popular historic sites such as Acropolis of Athens and Archaeological Site Mycenae are in your itinerary. Get outdoors at Mount Lycabettus and Rema ton Mylwn. Change things up with a short trip to Kapsia Cave in Kapsas (about 1h 55 min away). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Plaka, delve into the distant past at Temple of Olympian Zeus, steep yourself in history at Areopagus, and make a trip to Ancient Agora of Athens.

To see where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, read Athens trip planner.

In October, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 28°C, while at night they dip to 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
