One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step off the beaten path and head to Food Tours and Temple of Athena Nike. Change things up with a short trip to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio (about 1h 15 min away). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Acropolis of Athens, explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 91°F, while at night they dip to 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
