Athens, Athens & Attica, Greece
If you head to Athens in the top of their summer, the city is a lot less crowded with large amounts on Atheneans leaving the city to spend time in the country.

The parthenon is VERY slippery as the stones have been polished by the feet of millions of visitors over the centuries.

The train system is incredible and goes all the way out to the airport. It is worth waiting for a train when you first get in as it will take you right into the city (or even to the plaka). Don't get caught out by the taxi drivers who are know to charge up to 200 Euro depending on how lost you look.

Ancient Greece have a very special place in my heart and you can feel the history when you visit Acropolis!! Unfortunately you can't get really close to the temples...but when it is to preserve the temples it is worth it! History is very important but remember to walk down to the plaka area were you can get the feeling of the greek culture as it is now...There are shops, restaurants and of course tourist but it is all good!

Photographers take NOTE: For a great view (oustanding picture opps) and solid Greek food at reasonable prices, go to the Strofi Restaurant (at the Acropolis) at Rovertou Gkalli. Head for the rooftop just before sunset and you will experience unforgettable views of the acropolis. For a true bargain and dynamite food, head to Thanasis in Monastiraki on Plateia Avissynias for kebabs or to The Food Company also in Kolonaki on Agannostopoula at the intersection with Dimokritou for salads, greek specialties with a twist and some of the best baked goods you will find in Athens.

Having admired the Parthenon on the Acropolis, take in the site of the Ancient Agora - the market place of ancient Athens - and its museum.

Athens, Athens & Attica, Greece
Athens was sort of a let down for us, and perhaps we need to give it a second chance. We first got there on a very long, uncomfortable train ride from Patras and had just been to beautiful Olympia. The train stopped and we saw the sign for Athens Station but didn't believe it cause the station was so pokey. Didn't think it was possible that a capitol cities train station could be so one-horse town sized. So we got off the train anyways, just in case it was the right Athens, and it was. So we walked to our hostel and the part of the city we walked through looked like a bomb had gone off and no one had bothered to repair it. The pavement was all cracked and you could smell the sewage under the street, and it really didn't feel safe. Now since then I have been to "third world" countries for which most have been cleaner, nicer smelling, better up-kept and safer feeling. So anyways that was our first impression of Athens and it kind of stuck. In the couple days that we were there, a friend was flashed walking to get breakfast and we met another girl who had a creepy guy following her. The only nice part of Athens that we saw was around the Acropolis, which was amazing, and that is where we had some really nice Greek food as well. Now if anyone has tips for when we eventually give it that second chance: a nicer neighborhood, perhaps- I would gladly take that advice. If you time your visit right, the Acropolis is free on some National Holidays.

Athens is great, once. It was beautiful to see. However, it was odd seeing these ancient historical sites right next to the freeway.
