Athens Travel GuideAbout Athens
Athens, Greece, offers visitors numerous historical sites to explore. But the modern city is young and vibrant, with shopping and nightlife to entertain visitors.When to Visit Athens
With sunny and warm days no matter the season, Athens is a year-round destination. The most popular time to visit is late spring through fall, when the weather is the most accommodating and school is on break. August may be one of the hotter months, but hotel rates drop and the city is less crowded since most Athenians leave for their own vacations. Winter brings fewer visitors, but city campaigns hope to increase these numbers by offering attractive packages and events.
