Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Epidaurus Theater and Acropolis Museum. Visit Plaka Square and Acropolis of Athens for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Athens: Nafplio (Tiryns, Nauplion Promenade, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at National Gardens, admire the landmark architecture of Parthenon, and ponder the world of politics at Parliament Building (Vouli).

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Athens travel guide.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In June, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 24°C.
