One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Go for a jaunt from Athens to Sounio to see Temple of Poseidon about 1h 15 min away. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, and take a stroll through Plaka.

For other places to visit, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Athens day trip app .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
