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 Erotospilia beach and Pouda Beach. Popular historic sites such as Temple of Poseidon and Saints Constantine and Helen Orthodox Metropolitan Church are in your itinerary. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Scuba & Snorkeling (in Lagonisi), Glyfada (Room Escape Games & Sea Turtle Rescue Centre) and Vouliagmeni (Akti Vouliagmenis, Megalo Kavouri, & more). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, examine the collection at Neraida Floating Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of St Paul's Anglican (Episcopal) Church, and explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum.

For traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, read our Athens tour itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 35°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
