One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Step off the beaten path and head to Temple of Athena Nike and Temple of Hephaestus. Get some historical perspective at Erechtheion and Acropolis of Athens. Step out of Athens with an excursion to Temple of Poseidon in Sounio--about 1h 15 min away. Spend the 30th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Acropolis Museum and explore the ancient world of Ancient Agora of Athens.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Athens can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
