About Athens

A trip to Athens can be a treat for someone who worships the sun. The beautiful Greek metropolis is famous for its illustrious historical background and mesmerizing architecture. The place has the finest beaches, exquisite landscapes, and a happening and vibrant nightlife. Combine that with scrumptious cuisine, and you get the perfect spot for a getaway. From ancient ruins to museums, there is something for everyone here!

Speaking of this, the main sightseeing spots include Acropolis, a popular tourist spot that features old ruins. Other fascinating spots include Byzantine churches in addition to lively village-like neighborhoods.

Don’t forget to visit the Athens Flea Market if you are a shopaholic at heart. This place is the main attraction, and its unique environment is a fantastic place to experience the local culture. For a night out, Mnisikleous Street stairs is a must-visit as there are a number of restaurants lining the set of stairs.

In addition, while Athens is certainly not a very cheap option, it is not too heavy on the pocket either. We would say it is somewhat affordable and in the middle as compared to other European capitals. Hence, it is worth a visit!
