I have been in Athens only two days after a 12 days vacation in Naxos island. Well.. what I can say after such a short visit is that I need to come back!! I liked Athens a lot, we stayed in a hotel in Plaka area and I can suggest this location to everybody! You are at walking distance from almost all the main site and Plaka itself is really nice, it look like a small village in the city. Very cosy, lively and safe.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A lively and interesting city
  • Cons:Very hot in August
  • Last visit to Athens: Aug 2008

    Really good tips here. I love Plaka neighborhood!! PS. I think the name for the Greek sandals is "Sagionares" ;)
