“I am an Athenian...born & raised under the shadow of the Parthenon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

This is my city and I saw it through good times and hard. I now reside in California, but I visit every year alone or as a Tour Manager with a group. Athens is to be seen and experienced not just passing by for one day. I usually stay with my groups 4-5 days and we really walk the city. If you stay in Plaka you really can walk everywhere, from Constitution square and the Monument of the unknown soldier, to the New Acropolis Museum (a must see Gem), the Parthenon, going to the Central market where Athenians come for their daily shopping-meat, fish, produce. Then take a break with some delicious Greek coffee & Loukoumades. You can walk to the National Museum (another gem), walk to fassionable Kolonaki and from there take the cable car to Mount Lycabetus for an unforgetable view of all of Athens. You can also walk to the Olympic Stadium built in 1896 for the first modern games. So no way you will do all this in one day unless you are in a tourbus and you take your pictures from the windows. Another gem is the small Benaki Museum in Syntagma. But this is not all of Athens, I will take you to the suburbs, Kiffissia, Mount Penteli where the Parthenon marble came from, to some exquisite beaches or some secluded little coves to enjoy the beautiful Mediterranean waters. Of course lets not forget the great restaurants, tavernas, night life and bars to please every taste and pocketbook. So next time you want to visit Greece in general and Athens in particular, get the scoop from an Athenian. You will be glad you did!
