Athens’ peak-season crowds disappear in the fall. The weather is cooler, but the Aegean is still blissfully warm, the grape and olive harvests are in full swing, and the city looks magical after dark. Here are a few ways to enjoy Athens this fall.

  • Take the train to Meteora to savor the fall colors and the warm light around the monasteries.
  • Treat yourself to a private food tour of the city’s best markets, delis, and artisan stores.
  • Enjoy an all-day island-hopping adventure to Poros, Hydra, and Aegina without the high-season crowds.
  • Tour the vineyards around Nemea as the grape harvest comes in.
  • Savor local artisan olive oil with a tutored tasting.
  • Watch the sunset from the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion.
  • See the Acropolis lit up at night on an evening tour that includes dinner.
  • Learn about Greek gods, myths, and heroes as you explore the city’s ancient monuments.
  • Get to know locals on a bar-hopping tour.
