The Birthplace of Democracy

Athens is known for historic sites, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Lycabettus, take a stroll through Monastiraki, and explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum.

Vancouver, Canada to Athens is an approximately 18-hour flight. Traveling from Vancouver to Athens, you'll lose 10 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Vancouver in October, with highs in Athens at 28°C and lows at 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Heraklion.
