One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Lioulias Museum Replicas, Michaello Jewellery, Herod Atticus Odeon, and other attractions. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Temple of Hephaestus and Philopappos Hill. Venture out of the city with trips to Archaeological Museum of Nauplion (in Nafplio), Lion Gate (in Mycenae) and ARCHELON Τhe Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece (in Glyfada). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens, don't miss a visit to Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, get into the urban bustle at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, and take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Athens vacation builder site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In January, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 15°C, while at night they dip to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
