There are plenty if fantastic museums to visit, however in order to get a real understanding of Athens we recommend walking the streets of the city and visiting some of these sites:

    • Spend an afternoon visiting the famous world heritage site: the Acropolis of Athens and the new museum.
    • Walk in the areas of Plaka (with the narrow alleys under the hill of Acropolis).  There are lots of restaurants and bars in this area.
    • Go to Monastiraki square and visit the flea market (Ifestou 2, Athina 105 55, Greece)
    • Drink a Greek coffee or freddo espresso in the square of St. Eirini (near Monastiraki)
    • Take Ermou street all the way to Syntagma square and watch the changing of the guard in the parliament (change every hour on the hour).
