The Birthplace of Democracy

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 Temple of Hephaestus and Mount Lycabettus. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Akti Vouliagmenis (in Vouliagmeni) and Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at Erechtheion, delve into the distant past at Temple of Athena Nike, steep yourself in history at Ancient Agora of Athens, and wander the streets of Monastiraki.

To see traveler tips, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens online itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiports are Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, Skiathos Island National Airport and Mikonos Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in September, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
