What to do in Athens : Tips, places, hotels and restaurants


AthensThe capital of Greece, for the vast majority of people Athens represents antiquity and all its wealth. Today though it severely lacks open spaces and experiences high pollution levels but is still a city symbolic as a centre of European civilisation which it was primordial in founding. Athens has a population of just under a million. There are of course many monuments and buildings that are definitely worth a visit, the Acropolis, the Parthenon and its museum, the theatre of Dionysus, Agora and the museum, the Temple of Zeus, and the Tower of the Winds are just some of the most remarkable and famous examples. Numerous museums add to the range of places to visit such as the National Museum of Archaeology, the Byzantine and Christian Museum, the Museum of Cycladic Art, and the National Museum of Contemporary Art. Take a stroll around the city and discover the Great Market of Athens, the boutiques in Kolonaki Road, the viviacious quarter of Plaka, enjoy the view from Mount Lycabette or go bargain hunting in the Monastiraki Flea market. Wherever you go you will probably be surprised at the signs of modernity in the city, and the heat in the summer time. Spring is actually the best time to visit and enjoy the city’s multiple attractions at an unhurried pace, Athens possesses numerous treasures that should definitely not be missed.
