    Beautiful city!

    I was only there for 1 night but it was a beautiful city! My roommate and I were able to see a lot during that time. We got to see the Acropolis, which I've been dying to see. I used to take art courses and learn about the history and I would have to draw the Parthenon and I couldn't believe that I got to see it! I wish I had enough time to be there longer.

    History amongst Graffiti

    It was obvious that the Acropolis is Athens treasure because the area is monitored and well kept but the centre city did not reflect that same care. I was told one day in Athens is enough and people were right unless you leave the city.

    Insider Tip:Make sure you see the Acropolis Museum.

    Nice city

    City is very nice beginning the summer. Found some things a little bit expensive, but is manageable. Just be careful of pickpockets and avoid getting stucked in the middle of people going in/out of the subway.

    Insider Tip:I liked it, if want to visit Greece, Athens is a must be ready for lots of tourists and great food.
