How many nights in Athens?

I am going to Athens in June 2015 with my family and wondering how many nights I should spend there to get a good glimpse of Greek culture and visit the top sights and museums.

At least 3 nights in my opinion

I do agree with ddtem, but at the same time, I have to ask, do your other family members have the same level of interest in culture, history, museums etc. as you? If not, 3 days may be a bit much for them. It can get very hot in June in Athens and many people would rather spend their vacation time by the sea rather than in Athens... Might be something to think about, especially if your total vacation time is limited as well...

Hi Samuel. I too would suggest at least 3 nights. There really is alot to see and if you spread your time out a bit rather than a whirl-wind visit, you can fit in quite a varied experience. For example, visit the historic landmarks early in the day. Have a nice lunch in the Plaka area. Afterwards, consider museums, the National Gardens and changing of the guard ceremonies in Syntagma square. There is also a very interesting fish/veggie/meat market, and a flea market as well (Changing of the guard ceremony and flea market especially good on Sundays). It really will depend on your family's interests and how much vacation time you have. Happy planning!
