Even though the temperatures are high, summer is undoubtedly the season par excellence of Athens. Combine the morning walks to the archaeological sites and the museums with eating and drinking at squares, terraces and pedestrian zones. Enjoy a long cold coffee at one of the numerous cafes downtown and fight the heat with a dive into a pool of one of the hotels or at one of the nearby or faraway beaches of Attica. A favorite summer habit in Athens is going to summer outdoors cinemas, while the Celebration of Music at the Technopolis of the City of Athens gathers thousands of people. Of course there is no summer without the performances of the Greek Festival at Herodeion, an experience you should definitely have.
