The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Explore hidden gems such as Lion Gate and Philopappos Hill. Change things up with these side-trips from Athens: Corinth Canal (in Corinth), Nafplio (Archaeological Museum of Nauplion & Fortress Palamidi) and Citadel and Treasury of Atreus (in Mycenae). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Acropolis of Athens, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Hephaestus, and take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum.

In October, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
