Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Get in touch with nature at Glyfada Beach and Mount Lycabettus. Kids will appreciate attractions like Plaka District and Ancient Agora of Athens. There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, stop by Melissinos Art -The Poet Sandal Maker, and wander the streets of Ermou Street.

For traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Athens trip planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 39°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
