Things to Do in Athens
Back when we reviewed Greece as a travel destination for you, we mentioned how Athens, the centre of Greece, was a must-visit. Today, we’ll discuss in detail five things to do when in Athens. These include;
- Visiting the Acropolis
- Going to the Acropolis Museum
- Visiting the Parthenon
- Seeing a show at Odeon of Herodes Atticus
- And experiencing rooftop fine dining at Orizontes or Strofi
Visiting the Acropolis
Athens’ ancient citadel, the Acropolis, is renowned all over the world for its classical landmarks and the surrounding beauty its abrupt rocky outcrop offers. Here, you get the perfect opportunity to learn more about ancient Greece, the philosophical treasures it hoards, and how the democracy of the olden days functioned.
We recommend taking a good rubber-soled pair of boots when going to visit the acropolis, as the climb is steep and can be slippery at times. However, once you reach the flat summit, you’ll understand what we mean when we say that the Acropolis takes you on a historical joyride.
