Athens is not just one of Greece’s most historic places, but easily rivals some of the other cities in Europe, too. Honestly, if you’re a keen history lover, then you’re going to love exploring Athens. Though, and it’s a big though, that’s not all that the city has; there’s a huge amount of incredible and best things to do in Athens that go far beyond its history, too.
This is exactly why I wanted to share some of our favourite spots that dotted all across the city.
Now, obviously, you can’t really go to Athens without seeing all the incredible history (and why would you not). So, I’ve tried to use some of the incredible historical sights as anchors of where to spend your time exploring. This way, you’ll get to see the main sights, whilst also strolling through the little nooks and hidden gems all across Athens.
