One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
For shopping fun, head to Amazing Chocolate or The Mall Athens. Family-friendly places like Donkey's Land and Dasoktima Tatoiou will thrill your kids. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio), Saints Constantine and Helen Orthodox Metropolitan Church (in Glyfada) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi). And it doesn't end there: get into the urban bustle at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, deepen your understanding at Mycenaean vaulted tomb - Acharnes, explore the different monuments and memorials at Phaleron War Cemetery, and delve into the distant past at Temple of Hephaestus.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in April, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
