"... just take stock of all..." Greece Favorite Tip by NUFC

Greece General: 655 reviews and 611 photos

Favorite thing: ... just take stock of all around. When you get into Athens, its all busy, busy, busy. Try and take a little time to have a look around Athens before you ship out to one of the islands.

My fondest memory is arriving at the port around 7am, getting on a boat where I had no idea where it was going, sitting eating a freshly made doughnut ring from the sellers on the quayside and just watching the city wake up - the sun came up behind all the fabulous buildings, people started arriving for work and althougth Athens has a terrible pollution problem, first thing in the morning, at the port, the smell was fabulous.

Fondest memory: What I miss most about Greece and its islands is the way the Greeks just take their time over everything - nothing is hurried, its all laid back and calm - nothing is on time but hey, you're on holiday!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
