Athens

Athens ©
One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae) and Nafplio (Kolokotroni Statue & Nauplion Promenade). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, delve into the distant past at Temple of Olympian Zeus, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

To find photos, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, use the Athens trip itinerary app.

Melbourne, Australia to Athens is an approximately 23-hour flight. You'll gain 8 hours traveling from Melbourne to Athens due to the time zone difference. In August, Athens is much hotter than Melbourne - with highs of 39°C and lows of 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) early enough to travel to Zacharo.
