Athens Travel Blog


Athens is the capital of Greece and it is one of the most fascinating cities in Europe. Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world and its a cultural and archaeology heaven. From the picturesque Monastiraki square to the unique Acropolis Temple and hundreds of museums, Athens has something for everyone. My advice though, is that if this is your first time in Greece and you are not interested at all in museums you would probably be better off going straight to a greek island, especially if it’s summer time, as the weather can get very hot.
