One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Temple of Hephaestus and Erechtheion. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Oenotria Land Costa Lazaridi (in Kapandriti), Astir Beach (in Vouliagmeni) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). And it doesn't end there: get great views at Mount Lycabettus, take a stroll through Monastiraki, delve into the distant past at Temple of Athena Nike, and see where the action happens at Panathenaic Stadium.

To find traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens journey maker app .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
