One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Athens is known for historic sites, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum, appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Lycabettus.

For where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Athens vacation planner.

Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo to Athens is an approximately 18-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kinshasa to Athens due to the time zone difference. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in September, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) early enough to travel to Cairo.

More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Sun): steep yourself in history at Pyramids of Giza, steep yourself in history at Great Sphinx, and then admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary). Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 30th (Mon): walk around Al-Azhar Park and then take a stroll through Islamic Cairo.

To see maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Cairo tour itinerary builder website.

You can fly from Athens to Cairo in 6 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Athens in September: high temperatures in Cairo hover around 39°C and lows are around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 1st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
