Athens

— 7 nights

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Temple of Athena Nike and Mount Lycabettus. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Nafplio (Syntagma Square, Archaeological Museum of Nauplion, &more), Moni Osiou Patapiou (in Loutraki) and Mycenae (Lion Gate & Citadel and Treasury of Atreus). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Hephaestus, explore the ancient world of Temple of Poseidon, contemplate the waterfront views at Corinth Canal, and don't miss a visit to Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

For more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Athens online day trip planner.

In May in Athens, expect temperatures between 29°C during the day and 20°C at night.
