A thoroughly delightful city
I spent about five days in Athens, though my time was split as I visited islands in between. I loved visiting the museums, historical sites, and also simply the wonderful food and walking through this relaxed European capitol. It truly has something for everyone (and every budget). The new Acropolis Museum stands out as a particularly well curated and worthwhile museum that helped me get more out of my stay.
Insider Tip:Budget tips: An order of tzatziki and pita can be a surprisingly filling meal and will save you quite a few Euros. Also if you think you will be riding the metro at least three times in the next four hours, the 24 hour pass is a worthwhile expense.
