Athens is the capital of Europe, with a very long rich history, from the Neolithic time. Over the years, many conquerors occupied Athens and built massive monuments. In 1834 it became the capital of Modern Greek. It is today, the modern metropolis with unchallenged charm.
A massive part of the town is Europe’s largest 3 kilometer pedestrian area that has been converted to trails and areas of historic architecture and sites around the Acropolis.
Due to the great morphology, this causes Athens to have plenty of places where you can admire stunning panoramic scenes and views of Athens.

October is a great month to visits, as is all year long, and although September has summer like temps, in October the weather starts to cool of quite a bit, particularly at night. The average temp is 19°C (66°F). So it might require some long sleeve shirts or a light jacket at night.
