One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step out of Athens with an excursion to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio--about 1h 15 min away. The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Archaeological Museum, pause for some photo ops at Temple of Olympian Zeus, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major aiport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in September, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
