What should you do?
So, lets say you have one day in Athens on your own, just for you! Sounds good? Yes, but you have absolutely no idea what to do! Read the following lines!
Ok newbie, here we go!
It is 8 am, you just found yourself wandering in Athens. Your stomach complaints. It needs a good breakfast and an even better cup of coffee! But where can you have this? One of the best spots in the city is here. Centrally located in the heart of Athens, it serves Greek traditional delicacies. Every Sunday you can have brunch if you book a table in advance. You definitely have to taste the rice pudding as they use authentic Madagascar vanilla! You can choose either freshly brewed coffee or freshly made juice.
After this great breakfast, you will feel the need to walk around just a bit. Maybe the perfect choice is the National Garden next to the Parliament. It was founded around 1840 and it has a vast variety of flowers and trees from all over Greece and other foreign countries. Actually, it is literally a true oasis inside the city of Athens. It is on your to-do list once you visit Athens. The garden is open on a daily basis from sunrise to sunset.
Do you know that there is a cable car up and running in Athens? It can take you to the highest point (277m) of the Athens downtown! Situated in Kolonaki area, it will take you up to Lycabettus hill where you can admire the view of Athens and gaze even the sea of Piraeus! It runs every day from 9 am till 1am and the price is 7 euro round trip. It commutes every 30 minutes.
One of the best neighborhoods in Athens is the Monastiraki. It is in the footsteps of the Acropolis and it is the meeting point for many inhabitants of the city. There are almost endless options for entertainment starting from here. Shopping to one of the many shops that you will find here is a must. Antique lovers will find here the heaven on Earth!
Now it is the time to enjoy a drink. Psirri, located next to Monastiraki has some of the best bars and restaurants in Athens. You can even enjoy a tasteful hookah along with your drink! The majority of the people that you will find here is somewhere between 2 and 30 years old, I think it is good to know that.
Of course, there are numerous things that you can do in the capital. As you can see, I skipped some of the most famous places like the Acropolis and the new museum etc. I think that these are known to everybody on this planet. I wanted to give you just a hint of what else you can enjoy here.
I would like to hear from you for this one!
