One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Let the collections at National Archaeological Museum and Acropolis Museum capture your imagination. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Ermou Street and Acropolis of Athens. Get out of town with these interesting Athens side-trips: Asteras Glyfada beach (in Glyfada), Pouda Beach (in Lagonisi) and Vouliagmeni (Astir Beach, Kavouri Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Plaka, kick back and relax at Marathon Beach, take in the exciting artwork at Ioannidou Art Gallery, and pause for some photo ops at Temple of Athena Nike.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 29°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
