One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Attractions like Plaka and Acropolis Museum make great kid-friendly stops. Do your shopping at Ermou Street and Pandora Art Gallery. Take a break from Athens with a short trip to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of National Archaeological Museum, view the masterpieces at Avlitis Art, steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens, and delve into the distant past at Temple of Olympian Zeus.

To find maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Athens trip planner .

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In August in Athens, expect temperatures between 39°C during the day and 29°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
