One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Take a break from Athens with a short trip to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, about 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Acropolis of Athens, contemplate the long history of Ancient Agora of Athens, explore the world behind art at Benaki Museum, and take a stroll through Plaka.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Athens trip itinerary planning app .

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
