Athens | Greece Travel Guide

This stop is all about Athens, Greece. If you’re just joining in, you can also find my Greece recap, along with all about Santorini and Mykonos.  You can also follow along with a travel map (also great while actually in Athens) and see our entire Greece itinerary.

It was important to me to visit Athens to see and experience this rich history in person. But, I’d heard that the city of Athens is still very much a big city. We spent one full day in Athens taking in all we could and it was the perfect amount of time for us. We enjoyed two beautiful nights looking out at the Acropolis. Grecians really know how to kill it with the outdoor lighting.

 

Overall, we spent 9 days in Greece with 2 nights in Athens. From the US, it was most common to arrive in the early evening into Athens. It takes about 45 minutes to go from the airport to central Athens. It was something we hadn’t thought much about, but we were able to Uber there with no issues. We dropped our things at the hotel and walked to the main shopping street to start exploring.

{Travel trip: a solid day in Athens will give you plenty of time to see all the main historical sights and get your hands on some authentic Greek wine}
