One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ermou Street and Orlik Gallery. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Acropolis of Athens and Plaka. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Mycenae (Agora art gallery & Archaeological Site Mycenae). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Glyfada Beach, visit Monastiraki, enjoy the sand and surf at Legrena Beach, and get great views at Mount Lycabettus.

For photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Athens sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Turkey, the closest major aiports are Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, Skiathos Island National Airport and Mikonos Airport. In August in Athens, expect temperatures between 39°C during the day and 29°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
