The Parthenon is one of the finest examples of Greek architecture and stands on the Acropolis as a reminder of the once great civilization that gave so much to the world. The City Center of Athens is loaded with temples and museums that pay tribute to the seminal ancient civilization that was a center for culture and political innovation.
The Sacred Caves are located on the northern slopes of the Acropolis and were dedicated to a number of the Greek gods. The Byzantine Museum houses a vast collection of Byzantine Art from Asia Minor and Greece, built in 1840 by Kleanthes. The harbor at Piraeus conducts shipping commerce with the rest of the world and still has remains of ancient boatsheds used during classical Greek times.
May through October are the warmest months in Athens, with temperatures routinely reaching into the 80s and sometimes above degrees. Winter temperatures seldom dip as low as freezing, normally hovering in the 50s. Most of the city's precipitation occurs between November and April, with very little rainfall during summer.
