"Athens and Acropolis" Greece Things to Do Tip by Aurorae

Greece Things to Do: 889 reviews and 1,495 photos

The first thing that comes to mind when thinking Greece, usually is Athens and Acropolis. :) (Mind you, for me it's lots and lots of wonderful sea, islands and greek mythology and art :)))
However, Acropolis might be one of the most famous and most important world landmarks. The cradle of modern culture and simply a breathtaking spot...
It might be one of the very few beautiful things in Athens (together with Plaka, another hill with a funny name that I unfortunately forgot, there is a church on the top of it, and several other archeological sites, and of course, museums!), otherwise Athens is a HUGE polluted city (when you climb to Acropolis or on the other hills, the thick layer of smogue is visible all over), houses are all the same, like match boxes :)), and it;s rather dirty... and permanently under construction and rebuilt, so there are cranes and holes everywhere... But it is a magical city however, with a soul and amazingly wonderful people, big heart and such great and warm atmosphere, that I always long to go back with so much eagerness and thrill!!!
