    Athens, Athens & Attica, Greece
    Greece is really beautiful, breath taking country... and of course the capital -Athens. In Athens are a lots of monuments (the biggest and the best - Akropolis) , activities (bars, clubs, tavernas) and etc. In restaurants - it's quite expensive, but in shops - normal (for example: juice (1.5 L - 1.05 EUR), bier (small - 0.60 EUR), water about 1 EUR and etc). Yuo schoud go to "Mpouzouki" (it's a traditional place, evening with greek dances, traditional music, food - very nice). Alkohol - one of the best is raki, also rakoumela (raki vodka+hot honey). The people are very friendly and helpfull, so don't be afraid - just ask about what yuo want! The best weather is on September (not too hot). Very good Trainservice and quite cheap (Athens - Thessaloniki - 15 EUR).

    If you're a student, you can sightsee many places for free. Such as Parthenon - my Polish student ID even worked.

    Athens, Athens & Attica, Greece
    Tip for shopping in Plaka: Haggle on everything. It is expected and the goods are priced accordingly. As a rule of thumb items are marked at 3 times their market value. That way the buyer can haggle the price down to half, walk away feeling like a master bargainer, and the seller still makes a healthy profit. Best strategy is to take a local to do the talking, start out offering a sixth of the marked price, and don't go higher that a third. Don't worry, you won't really bankrupt them or starve their children.

    My advice is to see the rest of Greece. don't just check out Athens. don't just do the same islands as everyone else. check out northern greece it;s beautiful! but i do love certain things about athens. it's too hot in the summer. but some of the locals are lovely. with the crisis it's gotten more rough. but don;t let that scare you away. keep your belongings close and stay weary and you'll be fine. def check out the roof top movie theater with a great view of the acropolis! Gazi is the area with all the dance clubs but people in Greece don't really dance. mostly just sit. smoke. drink. and stare at people. but all in all i love Athens and Greece as a whole. been going there the past few years. lived there for 2 months at one point. def going back. cheap city. giant thing of water costs like .50 cents
