One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Explore hidden gems such as Schinias Beach and Donkey's Land. Visiting Vouliagmeni Beach and Marathon Beach will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Dasoktima Tatoiou (in Acharnes), Papagiannakos Winery (in Markopoulo Mesogeas) and Attica Zoological Park (in Spata). There's much more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and contemplate the long history of Acropolis of Athens.

To find where to stay, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Athens trip itinerary website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 77°F, while at night they dip to 64°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
