Preparing for a Trip to Athens, Greece

Friday, April 3, 2015



My dream trip is happening tomorrow! Needless to say, I've been scouring the web for resources to help J and I make the most of our vacation. Because of our difficulty finding reasonable flights (both in price and in transit time) we decided to nix a visit to the islands, and rather stay at a sweet, little AirBnB a bit outside of Athens (along the subway line). I cannot wait to touch the Mediterranean and eat all the Greek food!

In my tour down the internet black-hole, I found these resources the most helpful. If you have any posts about Athens pop them into the comments section. I'd love to read them!

1) This map and photo guide of the Acropolis by Esther from Local Adventurer is printed and ready to come along for the trip! The Local Adventurer also has a great post on the Parthenon.

2) I also really enjoy this post about Alternative Athens from Kami and the Rest of the World. Her post made me excited to check out street art, cool cafes, and thrift stores in Athens.

3) The Urban Travel Blog have a nice overview post that provides a huge selection of things to do in Athens and even provides a 'soundtrack' for the city.


Have you been to Athens? Do you have any suggestions for our trip?
