Our tour group had Lunch at this Intercontinental Hotel. It's a pretty and well-appointed Hotel within an unremarkable urban mass called Athens. The Lunch was a delicious buffet and a welcome mid-day respite.

    Definitely a "MUST SEE" in Athens! The history of Acropolis is intriguing and the view of Athens and the Aegean Sea from Acropolis is PHENOMENAL!

    Odeon of Herodes Atticus

    26 reviews

    Odeon of Herodes Atticus is one of the best ancient theatres to visit in Athens. It has the most remnants standing, it's currently still in use for local entertainment, and the view from top is breathtaking.

    New Acropolis Museum

    0.78 mi from InterContinental Athenaeum
    36 reviews

    If you visit the Acropolis, you should really consider visiting this museum as well. I don't think I really had a sense of the rich history or what the Acropolis would have been like until I saw the museum. Great views of the Acropolis just up the hill and amazing exhibits. It really adds historical context and brings the Acropolis ...

    You Can't go to Athens without going up to see the Parthenon. It is the focal point of the city and the view dominates where ever you are at. It is fascinating and I would highly reccomend getting a guide. To go up there and not have a clue what you are looking at is defeating the purpose of going ...

    Temple of Olympian Zeus

    37 reviews

    A "must visit" place of Athens. It's story is quite interesting but the most impressive is the size of the temple. You won't be able to believe how could people living thousands years ago could ever build something like this!

    Μουσείο Ακρόπολης

    Essential if you're going to the Acropolis. It gives so much context to what you see and also has so, so much information you could easily go twice and find new things. As with the Acropolis, I heard several tour groups going through the guides were literally quoting from the plaques I was reading the whole time. No new insight ...

    The best vantage point for viewing the whole Acropoli, and the short walk uphill is wonderful.

    This is a fun bar in the center of Plaka that caters mostly to foreign tourists. It is modern and the music is amazing! It is striking because when you first enter you are struck by the bottles of alcohol all lit up in front of you! A must if you are a first time visitor!

    Parliament Building

    I would recommend visiting on a day when there isn't a protest, but those seem few and far between lately. If you do go, be sure to find out when the guards change their station. Between the uniforms and their march, I thought the changing of the guards in Athens was better than at Buckingham Palace.

    Visiting just for the changing of the guards is worth it, but there is so much more here. In a lot of ways it feels like the heart of the city.

    This market is bordered by Athinas, Evripidou, Eolou and Sofokleous Streets. It is the main market for meat, fish & vegetables including olives. Morning is the best time to wander around, a bit chaotic but a fascinating look at the modern Greece. You will see meat and fish from all over as they try to entice you to purchase. The ...

    Where else in the world will you find ancient artifacts displayed in the subway station? The small display was very interesting, but doesn't seem to get its due as most people just rush by.
