One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Venture out of the city with trips to Akrokorinthos (in Corinth) and Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, stop by Monastiraki, explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, and explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Athens day trip site.

Alexandria, Egypt to Athens is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Alexandria in December, expect Athens to be a bit cooler, temps between °C and °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) so you can travel to Fira.
