    There is a little coffee shop on the corner and a small store that is managed by an old woman who sells furs. Great place in the evening walking down the cobbled stones on the back road and then seeing the Pathetnon in the distance is amazing

    New Acropolis Museum

The New Acropolis Museum is an impressive building itself but the most important is that you'll have the chance to navigate through ages of the Ancient Greek History, see with your own eyes everything you used to learn at school and feel the vibe of Ancient Athens ...

    Temple of Olympian Zeus

    37 reviews

    You can almost envision a larger than life representation of Zeus striding between these huge marble columns. Many of them have collapsed and lie in marble discs on the ground, but the remaining pillars stretch toward the pantheon.

    Panathenaic Stadium

    33 reviews

    Still standing after over a hundred years since the first modern games, this stadium displays the ultimate spirit of sportsmanship where the prowness of the athletes took center stage without distractions of bells and whistles. Just the athletes competing and the spectators who come to cheer for them.

    Parliament Building

    34 reviews

    Really not that impressive. We were looking for it left and right without realizing that we were right in front of the Parliament Building, because it is so ordinary. There is a little square in front of it and that square is filled with pigeons. I don't remember seeing a whole lot of people hanging around there. I think the ...

    National Archaeological Museum

    23 reviews

    The National Archaeological Museum is a wonder that not enough people see when in Athens. It is in a bit of a sketchy neighborhood but taking a 10 minute taxi ride is well worth the cost. If you are a history buff this is the greatest collection that exists in Greece.

    This is where every tourist ends up. Plaka is what foreigners think of when they remember Greece. It is full of restaurants and cafes.Has museums and loads of restaurants. I would encourage you to maybe look at restaurants on the fringe of Plaka. You will find that the food is better and less expensive. A "must see" is the neighborhood ...

    Cape Sounion

    15 reviews

    The main attraction in Cape Sounion is the Temple of Poseidon - and it's stunning. Ideally, try to be there at sunset for breathtaking vistas. There is also a nice cafe there to enjoy a drink or a bite - with a view of the temple beyond.

    Athens, Greece

    10 reviews

    What can I say about my home town that hasn't already been said? Athens is cosmopolitan, friendly, upscale, poor, full of graffiti, delicious and most of all UNFORGETTABLE! For all of those reasons. There is no where you can go so full of history, tasty food and unique experiences. I love everything about this bustling town, especially the chaos and ...
