One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Acropolis of Athens and Little Mitropolis Church (Panayia Gorgoepikoos and Agios Eleftherios). Visit Glyfada Beach and Voula Beach for some beach relaxation. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, take in the exciting artwork at Athens Art Gallery, get a taste of the local shopping with Technohoros Art Gallery, and explore the world behind art at Frissiras Museum.

To see where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Athens trip planner .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
