One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Temple of Poseidon and Ancient Agora of Athens. Explore Athens' surroundings by going to Vouliagmeni (Astir Beach, Kavouri Beach, & more), Attica Zoological Park (in Spata) and Marathon Lake (in Marathon). On the 12th (Wed), spend a cool day on the water with Sea Stars. There's much more to do: explore and take pictures at Panathenaic Stadium, don't miss a visit to Platia Syntagmatos, appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus, and delve into the distant past at Temple of Hephaestus.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. August in Athens sees daily highs of 92°F and lows of 77°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
