The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Archaeological Site Mycenae (in Mycenae), The Great Theatre of Epidaurus (in Epidavros) and Nafplio (Kolokotroni Statue & Nauplion Promenade). There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, steep yourself in history at Ancient Agora of Athens, and take in nature's colorful creations at National Garden.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Athens trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Turkey, the closest major aiports are Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, Skiathos Island National Airport and Mikonos Airport. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in July, and nighttime lows around 28°C.
