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 Melissinos Art -The Poet Sandal Maker and Akti Vouliagmenis. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Temple of Poseidon (in Sounio) and Astir Beach (in Vouliagmeni). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Glyfada Beach, explore the ancient world of Temple of Hephaestus, tour the pleasant surroundings at Mount Lycabettus, and appreciate the history behind Temple of Athena Nike.

To see other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens route builder.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiports are Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, Skiathos Island National Airport and Mikonos Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 39°C, while at night they dip to 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
