Athens, Greece

Athens may just be my favorite city yet. The people are carefree, kind and always smiling. The weather is absolutely gorgeous. And the restaurants stay open late enough for my 10 pm dinners. Below are some of the reasons why Athens is a must-see city in my book …or blog.

Wherever you go within the beltway of the Athens city center, you are likely to run into something of significance from ancient times. I had a lot of fun exploring and getting lost among the city’s treasures.

A special thanks to Johnathan from Athens Free Tour for explaining some of the aspects of modern life in Athens and to the Rick Steves Audio Europe™ Travel App for providing more info of some of the most iconic sites in Athens.

As you get lost though, try to keep from venturing north outside the beltway as it is not the safest of areas.

In this post, I’d like to highlight some of the history and interesting facts of the Parthenon. However, nothing can replace the experience of actually walking among the impressively large structures. As you do so, I highly suggest you listen to Rick Steves Audio Europe™ Travel App for even more information on the Acropolis.

While the Ancient Agora is now little more than ancient ruins, I highly encourage taking a walk through it and imagining how ancient people used to live. I recommend downloading the Rick Steves Audio Europe™ Travel App as it does a great job of painting a picture of life during ancient times.
