Everyone’s top priority on a trip to Athens should be a visit to the Acropolis. In the fifth century BC, the ancient Greeks set about turning this rocky hill overlooking Athens into a citadel. The Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena, is the jewel of the settlement, but other notable buildings include the Erechtheum and the Temple of Athena Nike. If you’re interested to find out more about the architecture and cultural context then be sure to invest in a decent guide book, or even better hire a local guide! The Acropolis Museum is also located at the bottom of the citadel, offering further insight into the remarkable buildings as well as important Greek statues.

Athens is more than just a city; it’s also the gateway into the beautiful countryside and natural wonders of Greece. Lake Vouliagmeni is a stunning lake with hot springs and little fish to nibble away at your dead skin- the ultimate natural spa! If you’re visiting the capital with a loved one, this makes a great romantic day trip to leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed. In the evening, sample some delicious authentic Greek food at Psarras. With live music most nights, and former guests including Brigitte Bardot, it’s a great place to end your holiday on a high. Afterwards, end your evening with a few cocktails on the terrace at A for Athens, with spectacular views of the Acropolis and Monastiraki Square.

If you’re kids are bored of traipsing around the museums and ruins, then treat them to a day or night at Allou Fun Park, packed with games and rides and typical fair food such as hot dogs and candy floss! Alternatively, the Greek Reptile Centre is a must for anyone into exotic animals, housing lizards and snakes such as king cobras, anacondas and iguanas.
