One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Anafiotika, Rabbithole, Vouliagmeni Beach, and other attractions. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Panathenaic Stadium and Temple of Olympian Zeus. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Acropolis Museum, don't miss a visit to Plateia Syntagmatos, delve into the distant past at Temple of Athena Nike, and wander the streets of Plaka.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Athens driving holiday planner .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In September in Athens, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
