    I had the time of my life in Greece! Anyone would fall in love with this country, especially Athens and Santorini Island! Everything was amazing; the food, the people, the attractions! I would definitely recommend visiting Greece! I would definitely come back to this spectacular country!

    Beautiful| Serene|Traditional||historic|Beach destination

    Athens is one of the oldest historic cities that I have ever visited. The temple of deities and the museum in Acropilis are outstanding piece of work that astonishes you. Not only that the Greek pop music is another thing that makes you dance and enjoy even if you had a tough day. Not to mention,the gastronomic delights the place offers-Mousaka, Souvaki and gyros are just to die for..

    Insider Tip:If you are a party person you will have to visit Gazi district after 12 mindnight. The industrial district turns into a party place.

    Overrated place

    The only nice place in Athens is Acropolis and seaside, the rest is just shady, dirty and makes you feel uncomfortable. But it's still worth to visit to try so cheap street food and Raki.

    Amazing Athens

    Athens felt like a breathe of fresh air. The food was amazing(fresh and whole), the drinks were good, everything was reasonably priced and over all it was just a good city to be in. It was so filled with culture and there was an artifact around every corner. Only complaint might be the very mediocre transportation systems.

    Insider Tip:fresh juice and 2 euro street gyros - probably the best meal i've ever eaten

    Fantastic city! I had heard that it was a very sketchy city and not a nice place to stay in. Maybe it depends where you stay in the city, but I thought it was beautiful and you can't be the centuries of history it has to offer!
