One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Let the collections at Acropolis Museum and Benaki Museum capture your imagination. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Monastiraki and Areopagus. On the 17th (Tue), spend a cool day on the water with Sea Stars. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Plaka District, explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, and identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle Rescue Centre.

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

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
