Athens

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Venture out of the city with trips to Corinth (Akrokorinthos & Archea Korinthos). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, delve into the distant past at Ancient Agora of Athens, wander the streets of Plaka, and appreciate the history behind Temple of Olympian Zeus.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Athens attractions planning app.

Singapore, Singapore to Athens is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Singapore Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time is minus 6 hours. Traveling from Singapore in November, expect Athens to be much colder, temps between 22°C and 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Heraklion.
